Information and Frequently Asked Questions

BYOD, (Bring Your Own Device) in the high school is the next step in our implementation of information technology to enhance the learning environment in which each student has relevant learning tools in the classroom. As with all major decisions made at the Academy, we spent significant time determining what is best to prepare young men to succeed in college and in life. This change is part of an ongoing process connecting academics, technology, and the educational tradition at Saint Thomas Academy.
