How are EPIC students doing?
  • The program began in 2004 with only 16 students. Many of those students have now graduated college with engineering degrees.
  • Nearly one-third of Davidson's students are participating in one of the EPIC pathways. Davidson's teachers strive to develop relevant and rigorous course work.
  • The average ACT score for EPIC students was an amazing 28!

Mission Statement

The administration and faculty at W. P. Davidson High School are determined to prepare students for a future of opportunities. The Engineering Pathways Integrated Curriculum (EPIC) will equip students with the  knowledge and analytical thinking skills needed to succeed globally in any math or science field , including a degree in engineering, pre-medicine, and computer science.

About EPIC

EPIC is a college preparatory STEM academy which will arm students to enter post-secondary education qualified for a major in many areas.

All EPIC freshmen will take EPIC Career Prep. In this course, students will learn basic computer skills necessary for success in their core classes. They will also explore the 3 EPIC pathways to determine which area is 

EPIC Goals

Our EPIC goals are to offer all Mobile County students an opportunity to explore careers in math and science,  specifically in the field of engineering, biomedical, and computer science. To provide an incentive for all students to strive for excellence in math and science. To offer a strong math and science scope and sequence for all students, with a specific Pathway for EPIC students to prepare them for college math/science majors. To provide options to students to insure that EPIC offers a valuable instructional experience to enrich students at all levels. To serve the community by preparing graduates striving for math/science excellence. To utilize community resources to insure a full and well-rounded experience for EPIC students, including a career component.
