Technology

Christ, Prince of Peace is responsible for educating its students to be productive, contributing members of our society. The twenty first century requires students to understand complex terminology, communicate clearly, discern massive amounts of ever changing information, and apply appropriate problem solving techniques all while utilizing appropriate digital citizenship skills.

Our technology goal is to expand the students’ abilities to research, gather, analyze, synthesize, evaluate and present the information available in our global society. In all areas of the curriculum, students at Christ, Prince of Peace will learn to use an information based inquiry process. This is accomplished through effective and meaningful instruction where technology is not a separate entity, but rather a part of the curriculum. We provide a variety of technological tools to assist our students and continually upgrade our hardware and software.
