WHERE THEY ARE
EPIC: AN EDUCATIONAL OPTION FOR FAMILIES' UNIQUE NEEDS
EPIC Charter Schools provide an education option chosen by parents and students to meet unique needs, circumstances and personalities. Parents know their students’ needs and can coordinate with education experts to find the best possible fit. While EPIC is not the best possible solution for every family, it can provide learning opportunities alongside traditional schools to fill in gaps within Oklahoma’s education landscape.
WHY STUDENTS AND PARENTS CHOOSE EPIC
Families choose EPIC for reasons as diverse as they are. A more flexible schedule is also a reason we hear of students trying something different than their traditional schedule as a tuition-free option accessible 24/7 with certified teachers available for tutoring, homework assistance and evaluation. Other common reasons include:
OPTIMAL SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT AND SAFETY
Phases of life characterized by change or family circumstances may lead families to look into other options.
Feeling disengaged or bullied in a traditional school can be a reason some families choose EPIC. School safety has also become a concern, between the COVID-19 pandemic and the potential for violence witnessed in other schools.
ATHLETICS AND OTHER COMPETITIVE INTERESTS
Many of our students are aspiring athletes with bright futures that require them to play on a traveling team. A more flexible schedule can allow for additional practices and other accommodations so students can study during related travel. Gymnastics, music, swimming and dance are just some of the disciplines our students represent.
UNIQUE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OR GOAL
Every child learns differently. Meeting the needs of some students require a varied environment and other approaches that traditional methods may not be able to work with in the same way. Tailored options exist through EPIC.
Some physical and emotional issues are better accommodated outside of traditional school settings.
