At Mount Saint Charles Academy, our students become translators of the technology world. They are the shapers of the future, the engineers of today, and the creators of tomorrow. We put real-world experiences at their fingertips, so they learn first-hand how to handle, manage, develop, and troubleshoot equipment ranging from robots to hardware. Students learn what is happening inside the body of computers, interpret how computers “think” and why the equipment performs tasks the way it does, and understand how to program and simulate specific tasks within these devices. For Mount students, technology literacy is ingrained in the fabric of everyday learning.
The vision of the Technology Department is to fully prepare students for post-secondary endeavors in the collegiate and career setting by providing outstanding 21st-century curricular offerings in technology. Our goal is a technology-rich teaching and learning environment that encourages collaboration, communication, innovation, and digital citizenship that achieves academic and professional proficiency for all students. Students in the high school are allowed to BYOD or “bring your own device.” All devices must be registered with the school. All MSC students are required to take .5 tech credits while in high school.

“The technology program Mount has been rolling in and integrating into our curriculum has opened my eyes and broadened my interests career-wise and hobby wise. I’ve been at the academy since 7th grade, and I’ve taken a technology class every year, starting from Desktop Publishing and Web Design to Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles. Who would have known I would be taking an AP class as a freshman? Not me! I hope to go to college for computer science, and I wouldn’t have discovered my passion without the technology program at Mount. The technology that Mount is incorporating into our school is making it very modern, and makes me proud to be a Mountie.” – Aryan Bhadouria, Class of 2022
“Our Computer Science program has grown exponentially, and the future looks exciting and bright. We are fully dedicated to bringing our technology offerings in line to the robust needs of the future.” – Richard Simard, teacher
