Technology

Nardin Academy’s educational community is immersed in an environment in which the students, faculty and staff, employ existing and emerging technologies within the curriculum to support and empower learning, to connect and collaborate outside the traditional classroom and for independent growth.

The learning environment includes technology tools and opportunities to maximize learning, to build and extend skills and proficiencies while improving individual achievement. At Nardin, we commit to prepare our students to work in an evolving, information-centered, world. The technology infrastructure efficiently delivers tools to assist teachers and students in their abilities to leverage the power of technology to connect to the world, to develop as learners and thinkers while supporting content knowledge and becoming proficient producers and consumers of information.
