At a special meeting on April 2, John Carroll High School announced its cutting-edge technology plan for the 2013-14 school year.

Principal Ben Hopper unveiled how the school will be implementing its plan to provide every teacher and student with the latest technology tools including iPads for every student, Macintosh books, Apple TV's in each classroom and much more.

Additionally, all students will receive the latest version of the iPad upon graduation to use in college as a part of this exceptional program.

JCHS will be providing the latest iPad 4 for each teacher, along with the professional development which is needed to use the technology in the classroom. The school will be working with parents, students and faculty to teach the roles and responsibilities of using the latest technology.

JCHS alumnae and teachers Kaylee Tobin and Corey Collins gave live demonstrations at the meeting, explaining how they have been using the technology on their iPads and how they have used the Apple TVs in their classrooms this year.

John Carroll High School would like to thank the generous donors, including the Diocese of Palm Beach, the JCHS Education Foundation, and many others, who have helped the school upgrade its wireless infrastructure and purchase technology tools as it moves forward with this exciting endeavor.

John Carroll High School is located at 3402 Delaware Ave. in Fort Pierce and serves students, both Catholic and non-Catholic, from Palm Beach, St. Lucie, Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee counties.
