In grades three through five, 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.
In Middle School, students are introduced to coding, design, and building through a program entitled Empow.me. Students earn “badges” for completing various projects using applications such as TinkerCAD, Minecraft, Lego, Scratch, and Stykz. At the high school level, students are expected to be comfortable with the technology necessary to complete their work, including internet research, presentation programs, Excel, Word, Publisher, graphing calculators, and more.
Chapel committees comprised of faculty and students work together in planning and conducting the weekly chapel services, as well as special “all-school” chapels throughout the year.
