St. Barnabas students are offered the latest technology in order to help them become 21st Century Learners.  With assorted hardware in classrooms starting in Pre-school , teachers are able to incorporate apps and educational programs into their daily curriculum, which enables them to teach each student in a way customized to work best for his/her own unique skills and educational needs.

St. Barnabas is a certified Digital Citizenship school, and has implemented the curriculum into Computer class for Pre-school through 8th-grade students.  Digital Citizenship teaches our students responsible use of computers and technology as well as social media.  The curriculum is designed to empower students to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly in the digital world.  Our objective is to provide students with the knowledge to be a good digital citizen and build on that knowledge throughout their years at St. Barnabas.
