Epiphany is a boutique, full-service after school academy, esteemed for our dedication to teaching the whole student. We consistently elicit the strongest work ethic in our young scholars, helping them reach their full potential and achieve all of their academic and non-academic goals. Our highly experienced, extensively credentialed instructors guide our students every step of the way, helping mold them into the disciplined, well-rounded individuals they promise to be. In addition to academic subjects and prep-courses, we have Epiphany Art Studio and Epiphany Music School where our professional teachers teach students art and help them with art portfolio development and music instruments, respectively. Since 2014, all of our students have been accepted to Ivy League schools or top universities nationwide. Our first 30 minute consultation is FREE. We can either provide in-person tutoring/consultation at our convenient location in midtown Manhattan, or work together over Skype. We will work around your schedule.


We make sure that nothing is left out. From homework, to extracurriculars, to standardized tests, to internships, to prepping for high-school/college applications, we have specialized programs for every aspect of a student’s academic career. After consulting with the student and his or her parent(s), we design a schedule tailored to meet the distinct needs and interests of each individual. In addition to group study, each student has a dedicated instructor whose role it is to guide the student on their path to achievement and make sure that all of their goals are met. The results show: our students routinely receive acceptances from the most competitive universities: Brown, Columbia, Harvard, MIT, Yale, Dartmouth, Duke, Cornell, UChicago, and NYU, just to name a few. Epiphany is not your average college prep service. We are a strongly knit community and your second family. We have gone out of our way to gather the best teachers around, and to create a warm, supportive, and stimulating environment for our students, so that they can truly call us their home away from home.
