- 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.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
