The School of Technology focuses on preparing students for college with an emphasis on 21st century digital literacy skills. Students will complete a rigorous college preparatory program designed to equip them for majors in video and audio technologies, digital media and web technologies, and engineering and robotics technologies. Students will explore existing and future technologies in an effort to improve or solve real-world problems. Through partnerships with corporations, students will be given job shadowing experiences, internships, and mentoring opportunities to explore existing and future technologies. Each class in the School of Technology is a blended course (online and instructor-led).
The academic programwill emphasize Project Learning through a one-one computer environment. Project Learning is organized around the creation, execution, and finished production of something object-related. For example, instead of publishing a report to share information, students will use technological tools such as the video camera, computer, and internet to create a documentary or interactive web page with streaming video footage.
Upon graduation students will have a digital portfolio, relevant work experience, industry standard certifications required for entry-level employment and be prepared to enter into a post-secondary (technology-based) program of study.
