Technology

EBC-PVCA-276

One of our goals is to provide students with the skills that they need to serve the Lord in education and in the workplace. In order to meet that objective, we begin to teach our students to use technology in kindergarten. Lower elementary school students learn the fundamentals of computers and typing. By the primary grades, students learn more complex technology skills in Microsoft Word, Excel, Publisher, and PowerPoint. During their weekly technology class and through class assignments that require them to use these programs, students develop a proficiency with technology that is required for higher level course work.

At the high school level, students are expected to be proficient in the technology necessary to complete their work, including internet research, presentation programs, Excel, Word, Publisher, graphing calculators, and more. Teachers include technology in both out-of- class assignments and in-class presentations and provide students with direct instruction in various technologies as it is relevant to their courses.
