Technology Classrooms

In conjunction with the construction of our fine arts education center, a new wing of 21st-century classrooms was added on to St. Mary Catholic High School. Four classrooms, each focusing on a different area of technology, were installed.

The distance-learning classroom provides access to AP, CAPP, specialized and accelerated classes from schools across the state; to educational networks via direct connections to real-world professionals in hundreds of fields; and to new opportunities to build vital skills through live, interactive seminars, lab simulations and virtual field trips. The forensic/presentation lab is equipped with tools to help students enhance their interpersonal communication skills and to craft quality presentations. The business marketing and graphic (BMG) design lab provides an environment for students to create high-quality digital and print media. This lab enables students to become proficient with tools that are commonly used in a wide range of creative industries to produce real-world presentations and graphic designs. The innovation, science, technology, engineering and math (I-STEM) lab provides students with the high-tech resources needed to apply math and science knowledge using engineering technologies including computer-aided design (CAD) software.
