Our One to One Technology program (one device for one student) brings the newest learning resources directly to our students. As we enhance our curriculum with anytime, anywhere access to a variety of digital resources, learning will become more real and relevant while, at the same time, more experiential. As active participants in their own education, students gain a better understanding of subjects through tactile, visual and auditory learning.
Every student at Concordia is required to have either a MacBook or iPad on the first day of class. Through onsite management tools the high school provides access to high speed internet and a variety of apps required for courses. Concordia provides training for any student who would like to have it.
