Our younger scholars begin with keyboarding, Kidspiration and other concepts to build a strong foundation. As they grow added programs such as iStation, PowerPoint, Excel and more will help with skills from coding to math and language arts.
Using both Microsoft and Apple products, our students are taught through both platforms with Apple Education and Google for Education giving our students a well-rounded technological education.
