High Point Christian Academy utilizes a network of Windows-based computers. Each classroom is equipped with a computer for administrative and student use. Elementary and Middle School students share a computer lab and attend computer classes once a week. Technology skills are integrated into the classroom curriculum through use of quarterly technology projects. In addition, students learn keyboarding skills beginning in Grade 2.
