Our faculty and students use technology at all grade levels to enhance learning. Google Classroom is integrated into our students' learning environments starting in the Lower School, and students continue to use Google Classroom more independently as they progress through Middle and Upper School.

Teachers in grades Kindergarten through Fifth have iPads in their classrooms used for research, videography, and many other purposes. Through Jr. Kindergarten classes, teachers in the Cubs can bring a mobile iPad cart into their classroom when needed. Starting in Fourth Grade, students are introduced to a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environment that allows them to communicate directly with their instructors and collaborate with their peers on projects, mimicking a college environment.

All classrooms are equipped with interactive projectors and whiteboards so teachers can visually instruct the entire class at one time.
