The technology program at Villa Duchesne is designed to support and extend the use of computers, software, and electronic information for academic purposes. In the seventh and eighth grades, students learn keyboarding, basic applications software, research skills, and the role of computers in society. In tandem with these fundamental classes, learning the uses of technology is integrated into regular course work through the use of Tablet PCs in a 1:1 environment. For those students who are interested in extending their knowledge and competencies in technologies, the school offers AP Computer Science, Graphic Arts, and Web Design for tenth through twelfth graders.
The technology curriculum remains open and responsive to developments in the world of technology and the expanding interests of our students.
