Pursuing excellence in the original fields of formation science, anthropology, and theology as pioneered by Adrian van Kaam, CSSp, PhD (1920-2007) 
and developed by Susan Muto, PhD, Dean of the Academy
Welcome to Epiphany!
The Academy opened its doors in 2001.  In a beautiful setting that serves as an oasis of spiritual reflection and study, our students, visitors, benefactors and friends enjoy time in the company of a like-minded community of laity, clergy, and religious, dedicated to faith formation in an ecumenically sensitive setting.  Students and visitors to the Academy may access classes, days of reflection, retreats, and quiet time in the Chapel and Library. 

In addition to our extensive onsite Library, we offer a Bookstore that features the writings and videos of Fr. Adrian van Kaam and Dr. Susan Muto.
