Epiphany Catholic School

  • Epiphany Catholic School opened in downtown Lake City, in a small hall, offering grade one through four.
  • The Sisters of Mercy, from Wexford, Ireland, staffed the school boasting an enrollment of 29 students.
  • In March 1960 the school relocated to its present site, situated two miles south of downtown Lake City, between Marion St. and U.S. 441.
  • The Sisters of Mercy were recalled to Ireland, and the Sisters of St. Joseph of St. Augustine, were sent to the school.
  • The Diocese of St. Augustine reassigned Sr. Mare Rene Azar and so in 1995 the first lay principal, Mr. J. Mark Akerman was hired.
  • In 1996, Epiphany Catholic School added Kindergarten, with seventh grade following in August 1999, and eight grade added a year later.
  • In 2000, Mrs. Rita Klenk became principal. A new media center, administrative offices, clinic and student bathrooms were added in the summer of 2000.
  • In 2003, Ms. Carol Ghionzoli became principal, and in 2001 a Carmelite Sister joined the staff.
