as;dlkjfdakl

Lower School (K-6)

With "Classroom in a Box," Lower School teachers enhance lessons and build research skills as students use Samsung Galaxy tablets in the classroom.

Upper School (7-12)

All Upper School students receive their own ASUS Transformer Book T100 for use in classrooms and homework. Each device comes fully loaded, customized to each student's classes.

“Trinity is purposefully investing in the technology to strengthen and not detract from the curricular program. We neither want to dismiss technology nor do we want to elevate it to the position as an end goal. If it is a tool that enhances our mission, then we want to embrace it.”

Dr. Laura McCollum, Upper School Christian Studies Teacher and Director of Institutional Effectiveness
