Technology (6th grade) 
As technology continues to find ways to enhance our lives, we must continue to find ways to equip our students with the knowledge required to succeed.   Students will progress through three separate modules:  “Computing Fundamentals”, “Key Applications”, and “Living Online”.  “Computing Fundamentals” focuses on the hardware, software, and general maintenance/usage of computers.  “Key Applications” enables the student to be introduced to software applications that they will use on a regular basis.  Finally, “Living Online” will discuss the topics of computer networking with in-depth coverage of the Internet and what it has to offer.  Throughout the course, students will be introduced to ways these new skills can be used to further the kingdom of God.
 
Technology (7th grade)
Keyboarding

 In today’s age of technology, learning to master the skill of keyboarding is of utmost importance for our students.  It is becoming a “life skill” that not only will be used in middle and high school for researching and documenting papers but also in our personal lives for email and tracking our finances.  God has given us the ability to develop computer technology, and it is our responsibility to use it in the correct manner.  Once the basic keying skills have been established, this course will continue in document formatting skills that are commonly accepted in professional settings.  Our students will not only attain a skill that they can “use for life”, but they will also become fluent in the skills of time management, attention to detail, and organization. 
 
Technology (8th grade)
Performing with Microsoft Office 2007

 Using task-oriented exercises and real-life projects, students will become proficient in many areas of Microsoft Office.  Sections will focus on Word, Access, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook Express.  Using a business theme, students will practice “hands-on” the skills that will help them progress in both their education and in the business world.  Throughout the course, the students will be introduced to different ways they can use these new skills to further the kingdom of God.
