School Technology

Archbishop John Carroll High School is committed to the use of technology in education and has embarked on a path of continuous growth in this area.  The school maintains four fully networked computer labs connected to the school’s Intranet and the Internet.  We take pride in the following:

Multi-discipline Lab (Rm 310-312)

For utilization by classes for specific research and projects.

Thomas Nedelka Writing Lab (Rm 305-307)

Utilized primarily by the English Department to assist students in enhancing their writing skills.  Students use Internet resources to develop their background in literature.

Library Lab

For students to carry out independent research throughout the school day.

Business Lab (Rm 316)

For the required Sophomore Technology Explorations Course along with electives designed to enhance the technology proficiency of the student. Students are encouraged to utilize PowerPoint and Word in their classroom presentations.

The library provides home and school access to the following databases: all POWER library resources including Ebscohost, OUP Ready Reference, Grove’s Dictionaries of Art and Music, as well as individual subscriptions to ABC-Clio history databases, Gale Virtual Reference Library, Gale Literature Resource Center and Science Reference Center, as well as the Encyclopedia Americana, ProQuest, Wilsonweb.

  • Science classes make use of a networked wireless Computer Science Lab to conduct experiments and analyze data.
  • A five-station networked Computer Lab is located in the Art Room where the Adobe Photoshop Program is integrated into the Art curriculum enabling students to engage in related research projects via the Internet.
  • Each classroom is equipped with a SmartBoard, projector and computer. Internet access, Office products and textbook resources are also supplied to enrich student learning.
  • Our Guidance Department has a four-station Computer Lab to facilitate the search of Colleges and the various Grants and Scholarships available under the direction of the Guidance Staff.
  • The school has a wireless network and currently there are four NetBook carts for additional access to network programs.
