At the Academy of Notre Dame, we are committed to providing our students with a dynamic, state-of-the-art learning environment that will prepare them to succeed in an ever-evolving, information-based, and highly technological society.
All students receive an Apple Macbook Air, one of the most powerful personal devices on the educational market. By using the same device and consistent software, teachers and students can focus on enhanced critical thinking, streamlined collaboration and communication in all disciplines, and other skills necessary for a 21st century individual. Our curriculum encourages students to become more responsible citizens, helps students recognize the significance of their digital footprint, and provides tools to battle misinformation in a continuously evolving digital landscape.
Technology Courses Offered:
Alongside our one-to-one program, our technology department supports student learning with a blend of Cloud-based technologies as well as traditional on-site technologies. This includes large format and 3D printers, and dynamic classrooms equipped with high resolution projectors, Apple TVs for a fully wireless environment, and iPads for a fully mobile teaching and learning environment.
An updated wireless digital language lab offers students in every classroom a multimedia-based learning environment for independent or collaborative activities to develop language proficiency. Students in our physical science classes use interactive data recorders and computers to analyze data in real time. Middle school mathematics courses feature a dynamic e-book which provide instantaneous feedback to assignments and embedded videos to support immediate remediation. As technology evolves, Notre Dame teachers are constantly adjusting their curriculum to maximize learning while simultaneously embracing the importance of healthy digital citizenship.
Because of its innovative uses of technology throughout the school and our leadership in the field, the Academy of Notre Dame has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for 2021-2024.
