Bishop Eustace Preparatory School is leading the way to incorporate technology not only within the classroom but also teaching technology to our students.  This endeavor prepares them for a world in which technology is a critical tool in nearly every aspect of our culture today.  Below are just some of the ways that technology is introduced and utilized within our educational environment.

List of 7 items.

  • Bring Your Own Device

    Bishop Eustace Preparatory School is a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) institution. We recognize that many students prefer working with a PC or a Mac, an iPad or a Microsoft Surface, etc. Rather than require the use of one particular device, students are encouraged to bring a personal device to enhance their individual learning. Upon registering their device with the Technology Department, Eustace provides secure WiFi for students to use. Students may use their device in class with an instructor's permission and throughout our campus to work on assignments and accomplish many academic tasks, including homework, projects, and assessments.

    BYOD is the preferred policy for Colleges and Universities. As a college preparatory school, Eustace wants to provide similar opportunities for students to prepare for college. Providing the option of choice allows a student to use what device works best for them, as those interested in Mathematics and Science tend to use different devices than those interested in the Arts.

    While we allow students to bring in personal devices and will provide wifi access, personal devices are not required.  With this flexibility in mind, families may purchase whatever they feel comfortable spending on a device. Instead of building money into our tuition, we empower families the ability to choose the device that suits their needs the best.

    Bishop Eustace Preparatory School does not permit personal cellular phones on our wifi network, but MyEustace is mobile friendly, allowing virtually any device access to our Learning Mangement Software.  Students may also take advantage of the many computers on our campus in the Lulli Library and can sign out individual laptops to use.
  • Technology in the Classroom

    Bishop Eustace Preparatory School has made a considerable investment in the use of technology within the classroom and throughout our campus. Interactive LCD touch boards and document cameras are utilized in the classroom to help the students experience a more dynamic learning environment.   Our newly expanded data network provides fast and secure WiFi access to school and personal devices in every building.  Fully featured laptop carts with tailored software for specific courses provide computing to meet the ever-growing learning needs of our students.

    Computer resources are available throughout the campus to provide students with easy access at any given time to work on all course requirements. Students can even check out laptops from the library circulation desk at any time during the school day. 
  • Technology Courses

    Eustace offers a wide selection of technology courses catered to the diversity of our students' desired career paths. Whether a student is interested in the arts, sciences or simply wants to enhance their knowledge of a specific application, there is a technology course that will help them achieve that goal.  Just a sampling of these courses are:
    • Learning how to program in Java
    • Creating apps for mobile computing
    • Computer Aided Design for engineering and design careers with 3D printing
    • Advance knowledge of Microsoft Office products
    • Adobe Photoshop and InDesign
    Through our technology courses, students are learning how to move to a web-based education where they can access and work at their own pace anywhere they choose with the guidance of the instructor.
  • Bishop Eustace Robotics Team

    The Bishop Eustace Robotics Team (Bert) provides students the opportunity to apply skills learned in the classroom to real-world situations. Our robotics team is part of the F.I.R.S.T Robotics Organization, which competes at local, regional, and world competition levels.

    The team is organized as a business corporation that provides the opportunity for students to learn how an organization works as one cohesive unit to accomplish a set goal.  The team seeks students that are interested in business to market the team locally and at competitions, conduct presentations before others on the goals of the team, create and manage a budget for the competition season and solicit sponsors to help finance the team.  While the business group is marketing the team, other divisions (software, mechanical, and electrical) are designing a robot to compete in the challenge determined by F.I.R.S.T. Robotics.
  • Bishop Eustace TV

    Established in 2008, Bishop Eustace TV (BETV) has recently undergone a massive upgrade to provide state-of-the-art high definition TV programming across campus. Every morning, our student anchors deliver the announcements of the day. All students are encouraged to be a part of the broadcast by recording and reporting on special events on and off campus.

    Students have access to state-of-the-art video editing software on Apple computers. Under the guidance of our moderators, they learn skills that often inspire career paths. Many students that have been part of this activity have pursued studies of communications, journalism and broadcast journalism in college and have entered the career of broadcasting.
  • Yearbook and Eustacian (Newspaper)

    Print media has evolved with the accelerated growth of technology in our society.  Eustace has evolved through that same growth.  Gone are the days of using physical pictures, cropping them, and sending them off to create proof copies to be edited and reprinted.  The school yearbook is now digital.  Students utilized web base applications to layout designs and perform all of the necessary photo editing to produce a yearbook for every student.

    Newspapers are now available online and so is the Bishop Eustace student newspaper, the Eustacian. Student reporters write about events on campus and issues that are of interest to them. Articles are published on our myEustace portal for the entire Eustace community to read and enjoy.
  • The Future of Techology at Eustace

    Our faculty and administration eagerly evaluate new technology as it becomes available and look for ways to adopt it to suit our curriculum.  

    Our current Wifi infrastructure has allowed Bishop Eustace to quickly and easily bring new technology onto the campus and integrate it into the classroom.
