Education for the Digital World
Digital literacy. Creative collaboration. Inventive thinking. Moral compass.
Our children need these skills to succeed as lifelong learners in our digital world. Our Lady of Grace Catholic School engages students with 21st-century teaching methods and real-world experiences to actively develop these abilities, in the context of strong Christian values. We work with parents to guide students’ use of technology and all it can offer to stimulate more effective learning and develop their technical proficiency.
Technology in Grades K-5:
Our K-5 students enjoy access to mobile computer labs and weekly time our in Mac laboratory, exploring sites and content that provide opportunities for education and discovery, building upon classroom curriculum. Each fifth grade classroom is equipped with a SMART Board™, enabling teachers to bring lessons to life digitally every day!
Starting in third grade, student progress and performance is accessible online through our secure PowerSchool database.
Technology in Middle School:
In 2007, OLG Middle School launched our leading-edge One-to-One Learning Program, where each Middle School student has a dedicated Apple MacBook for use at home and school. These laptops put innovative educational opportunities at their fingertips. Students not only learn advanced technology skills, as laptops are fully integrated into classroom teaching and homework, they also learn significant responsibility in managing these valuable tools.
SMART Boards™ in every Middle School classroom further integrate teaching, technology and curriculum, creating one of the most technologically advance schools in the state!
