Our shared vision for technology at St. Paul the Apostle School is to advance a 21st century learning environment that directly furthers our “commitment to the development of the whole child.” The SPA Technology Vision extends beyond our classrooms: It encompasses students, teachers, administrators, parents and the broader SPA community, and is driven by the needs of the 21st century citizen to collaborate, communicate, and participate effectively and ethically in the global community.
