Technology at Xaverian strives to support the primary educational mission of the school while preparing our students in an ever more interconnected, online world. Technology is used throughout the curriculum to enhance communication and reinforce basic skills needed in personal and professional life.
Xaverian has been a leader in the one-to-one computing platform, providing each student with an iPad, as well as providing MacBook Airs to each of our faculty. All of our classrooms have AppleTVs that allow our teachers to access content from around the globe in seconds while being able to provide our students not only with current events but breaking news. We have redesigned our web presence to further facilitate collaboration among our students, their parents, and our faculty and are making use of such tools as Naviance for the college application process. We also have our very own learning management system, The Harbor, that serves as the daily hub for electronically submitting assignments, checking daily grades and averages, and obtaining information about current classes and lessons.
