The Technology Department prepares students to become lifelong learners and contributing members of an ever-changing information-based society through an integrated computer curriculum that builds key technology skills.
Instructional technology serves as a catalyst to promote problem solving, critical thinking, analytic and decision-making skills in all areas of instruction. Our faculty, students and staff will have the skills to access, process, and communicate information in a dynamic, integrated, technological environment.
Integrated Technology at The Academy is a progressive program spanning prekindergarten through the eighth grade. Faculty and students have access to the following:
-- 253 student-use only computers, which includes three mobile laptop carts
-- 30 interactive whiteboards
-- 92 Faculty/Staff computers
-- iPads in the Primary classrooms
-- Campus-wide Wireless Access
The Technology Department promotes on-going, timely professional development where staff members learn to integrate technology into the curriculum and explore new technologies. SAA supports an infrastructure that includes up-to-date hardware, software and modern peripherals so that the curriculum can be easily integrated and provides support systems, such as personnel, operations management, and other systems, that support teaching and learning.
