At Hillsborough Christian Academy, we believe in transforming learners to leaders. With that in mind, we understand that leading in the 21st century requires a set of skills above and beyond the three “R’s” of the last generation. This means our students must learn how to appropriately integrate the use of technology into their lives. We strongly believe that the student/teacher classroom relationship remains the center of our educational process. With that philosophy, technology in the classroom becomes a tool, a device for our students to dive deeper into their curriculum.
At HCA, our strategy is to use different technologies to assist in the developmental process. For instance, in our lower grades (Transitional Kindergarten-3rd Grade) we utilize Apple iPads. We have hand selected applications to go side-by-side with our already phenomenal classroom curriculum. Our lower grades use applications such as Starfall, Kids A-Z, Wet-Dry-Try (Handwriting Without Tears), and more!
