The High School Technology Program provides students with a specified approach to learning. Emphasis is placed upon Computer Science, Graphic Design, Video Production and Broadcast Journalism. This year, we are partnering with SeverStar to provide AP Computer Science and Digital Information Technology as part of our High School program.

In this course you will explore Microsoft Office online applications, web design, emerging technologies, operating systems, project management, communication methods, Information Technology careers, and much more while recognizing the value of these to the practice of biblical stewardship. Learn about your strengths and how they relate to different career paths. See how computer technology can help you serve others and as you grow in your ability to manage the amazing resources God has surrounded you with for His glory.

Video Production/Journalism and Broadcasting provides students the opportunity to utilize graphic design and Premier Elements to create and produce weekly announcement videos. Video production techniques such as storyboarding, composition, lighting and audio are applied to various projects. Students are challenged to develop fundamental skills in the production of journalism through multimedia, web, and broadcast platforms as well as develop a knowledge of journalism history, ethics use, and management techniques related to the production of journalistic media. 

The high school program utilizes Canvas. Designed specifically for teachers and students, Canvas is a cloud-based learning management system that connects all the digital tools and resources teachers use into one simple place. Hundreds of apps integrate seamlessly within Canvas, empowering teachers and students with relevant and easy-to-use tools to make teaching and learning more engaging. Providing students with exposure to this type of learning platform while still in high school will equip them to be more successful as they encounter integrated learning at the collegiate level.
