Driven by purpose and passion.
It is more critical than ever for schools and districts to not only have access to high-impact resources, but to also have a dedicated partner that listens, understands, and remains flexible in their service posture. Educational Epiphany is focused on promoting student achievement and school improvement through a finite set of actionable, measurable, and replicable ideas, including:
Providing support every step of the way in students’ literacy development journey across the four core content areas for:
- Early Literacy (Pre-K–2)
- Continuing Literacy (Grades 3–12)
- Infusing Literacy into ELA, Science, Math, and Social Studies Teaching and Learning Opportunities
Developing the capacity of school-based and central office leadership teams to lead through the challenges associated with promoting positive and enduring change, including support for:
- Aspiring administrators
- Assistant principals working toward the principalship
- School- and district-level academic coaches
- Principal supervisors
- Assistant superintendents
- Chief academic officers
Supporting schools to coalesce around a finite number of instructional practices by providing:
- Professional learning for every tier of the school, district, and/or organization related to these instructional practices
- Access to the instructional resources necessary to implement the instructional practices with attention to the calibration of knowledge, language, and tools
- Real-time, on-the-ground feedback and support to central office leaders, school leaders and their teams, and teachers

What our partners are saying
I had the privilege of working with Dr. Dickey as a partner to our district in supporting our instructional vision. Dr. Dickey worked with the Brooklyn North High Schools district for two years. During this time, Dr. Dickey’s dynamic and interactive presentations and workshops captivated our school leaders and educators to embrace a learning stance to examine their goals around ensuring rigorous standards-aligned and purposeful lessons in support of student success.”
The power of Dr. Dickey’s work has the potential to be far-reaching in our district. He is systematically energizing MHS staff to increase student access to standards-based learning through his academic language development across all content areas. His educational model is effective, comprehensive, and presents manageable strategies teachers can immediately use in the best interest of each student."

The impact is in the data
While 66% of US third graders do not read at the grade-level expectation, Educational Epiphany students are progressing toward and beyond developmentally appropriate expectations.
- Inaugural anchor data from the first school in implementation in the United States
- Murray Hill Middle School, Maryland
- Majority minority school (at the time, was the lowest performing secondary school in the district)
This longitudinal study on the impact of Educational Epiphany’s ideas for early and continuing literacy is published in a white paper by Scholastic Education.
