Technology

It is our goal to provide the resources and support our students will need to succeed in a technology driven society.

Our technology program incorporates computer-aided lessons beginning in Kindergarten.

Kindergarten through 2nd graders are first introduced to technology in the form of touchscreen tablets, which are the most beneficial form of personal electronic device at their stage of growth and development. The tablet platform provides them access to engaging, interactive books for beginning readers as well as concept-reinforcing games and activities.

Students in grades 3-8 use Chromebooks and Google Apps for curriculum enrichment and individual and group projects as they progress on their journey with technology. Richmond Academy promotes the development of proper keyboarding skills, an area which many schools have abandoned. At this stage, students are also introduced to the Microsoft Windows platform through a virtual desktop on the Chromebook.

All high school students are issued MacBook Air laptops as part of our 1:1 program. Besides using the laptops for assignments and test-taking, students are engaged in collaborative group projects where they take advantage of the vast resources of the Internet and apps such as FaceTime and Google Apps. The technology also facilitates a sense of community among the students across all campuses.
