The impact of EPAAF’s work is evident in every classroom and every support service on campus. EPAA students are successful because of the school’s full-court press for the growth, development and college readiness of the whole student. EPAAF supplements public funding so EPAA can provide essential programs and services.

EPAAF works with the Principal to identify key areas for funding that will have the greatest impact on the quality of EPAA students’ education. EPAA Quick Facts (pdf)
