Digital Learning

21st Century Digital Learning Environment

The Jackson Christian School 21st Century Digital Learning Environment is a 1:1 program designed to equip our students with cutting-edge technology, training, and engaging tools to help them prepare and train for exemplary lives of Christian leadership and service.

The current implementation plan includes improving and expanding our campus technology base. We have added new labs, provided more time for students to pursue STEM activities during the school day, and purposefully planned for technology use in every subject area. We are equipping and training our students with different devices, encouraging coding and technical skills, and exploring options for electronic textbooks. We also have a fully staffed and trained Help Desk available to all teachers and students.
