The role of “technology” at Academy High is quite traditional in the sense that we are less concerned with having the latest gadgets than with empowering students to fully and completely embrace the tools that they already have in the service of solving problems. This notion of technology as, fundamentally, a “tool to be used” rather than “a thing to have” reflects both the etymology of the word and a proper response to Neil Postman’s famous challenge of any new technology: “What problem does this solve?”

Academy High is a BYOD school with high speed, wireless internet access for all students and faculty.
