Technology
Berean Christian believes that 21st century technological literacy is essential for future success in college as well as the world of work. The school has invested in providing each student with an IPad along with the needed applications and e-books that has enhanced the students' technological competence and has facilitated learning. Teachers regularly use computers and support applications in all academic classes. The entire campus is fully networked and teachers, faculty and staff maintain e-mail accounts.
 
We use RenWeb, a school management system that allows parents and students internet access to information associated with classroom activities. We have found tremendous value associated with the use of this service which facilitates a secure link between parents and teachers, thus enabling a more cooperative relationship.
