Annunciation Catholic School’s commitment to technology flows directly from its mission statement:

“Annunciation Catholic School provides opportunities for academic excellence, character development,

and benevolent service for all students in a God-centered, Catholic-Christian environment. “

    Our students use technology in every avenue of their lives and will continue to use technology as alumni. With the maturation of the internet and the advent of digital learning tools, a modern, world-leading education requires the appropriate integration of technology. Independent thinking, academic achievement, and a global perspective are all enhanced through the appropriate use of technology. In an increasingly technological world, we believe it is our responsibility to embrace this tool, guide students to discern when technology is the tool of choice and when it is not, and lead them to apply their strength of character equally to this facet of citizenship

    Our goal remains to ensure that our students are given the resources to challenge themselves, grow and build the skill set and confidence to prepare them for lifelong learning.
