The primary goal of the instruction St. Bartholomew Academy is to assist students in acquiring mastery of content skills and then applying these skills to real-world problems and situations. The use of technology, hands-on activities, collaboration, and a cross-curricular writing program enhance our students’ learning.
The faculty and staff at SBA has committed to providing a 21st century learning environment for our students through the use of classroom technologies such as Kindle Fire tablets for our younger students, a mobile laptop lab, laptop centers in each elementary classroom, and Google Chromebooks for each middle school student. In addition, each classroom is outfitted with SMARTBoards, sound systems, and teacher computers connected to the internet via the schoolwide WiFi network. The classroom technologies provide the tools necessary to allow our students to work collaboratively and to access the myriad educational content of the internet, and teachers to provide differentiated learning opportunities.
