The Academy leads the way in integrating technology into the classroom. Technology is used as a powerful aid to learning, expanding possibilities for both students and teachers.
At the Academy, we continue to consider new pedagogies for our students of the 21st century, acknowledging the increasingly complex role technology plays in our lives and celebrating the worldwide connectivity it brings. To remain relevant in a global age, our school offers authentic and safe experiences that foster creativity, an entrepreneurial spirit, problem-solving and collaborative learning.
The core of this initiative is the faculty
. Academy teachers are reinventing the way students learn in their classrooms. Using tools native to their students’ generation, our teachers develop new ways to productively engage them in classic subjects as well as modern theories. The Internet, Web Quests, wikis, blogs, voice threads and Skype conferences intrigue, motivate and allow connections and collaboration among students in the room, around town, across the country and all over the world.
Students use state-of-the-art technology daily, including video chatting with entrepreneurs and astronauts, learning to code at an early age and access to advanced online courses at high schools and colleges. Resources are continually updated as technology evolves.
