Technology

It is the goal of Resurrection Catholic School to provide access to technology for the students in a manner consistent with creating and maintaining a school of excellence. Technology is used as a tool within the context of student instruction and lesson plans are designed to integrate technology into the curriculum. Students are encouraged to use technology tools to set goals, plan activities, and evaluate results rather than passively completing assignments without reflection. We utilize a variety of instructional technology, including interactive whiteboards, document cameras, student computers in every classroom, and iPads.

Religion & Service

Our students grow and excel through their involvement in our rich academic, cultural, and spiritual environment. At Resurrection Catholic School, Religion is not only part of the curriculum, it is reinforced through inter and extracurricular activities celebrating traditions and providing service to those in need.
