Education. Partnership. Inclusion. Counseling.

EPIC (Education, Partnership, Inclusion, Counseling) is a program provided by JFCS which integrates support services into your students’ classrooms.

EPIC spans the full Pre-K through 8th grade spectrum of needs from identifying young children who may be in need of early intervention to guiding students towards independence in preparation for high school. We believe that students should be able to participate in their preferred school regardless of diagnoses or academic achievement.

If you would like more information on EPIC, please contact Lauren Lodato at
