Mount de Sales Academy was the first private high school in Macon to have a school-wide network with internet access, website and email hosting, computers in every classroom, wireless mobile labs, and a 1:1 iPad initiative. Twice recognized by the National Catholic Educational Association for innovations in technology, Mount de Sales continues to enrich and infuse all areas of school operations and the learning process with current technologies and practices.
Students and faculty stay connected with their own unique digital identity. They have access to the Google Apps domain for email and cloud storage services.
1:1 iPad Program
We provide each student with an iPad loaded with educational applications for creating content, taking notes, building vocabulary, mastering skills, and exploring the world. Research and experience confirm that iPad technologies enhance student engagement and creativity.
Computers & Network
Each student also benefits from state-of-the-art computer labs in the Academic Resource Center (ARC) at the Knott Library and in classrooms on campus. We recently upgraded our network cabling to provide the maximum flow of data in a fast and secure Ethernet and wireless environment. We protect student information using state-of-the-art firewalls and comprehensive internet security suites.
PowerSchool Student Information System & Learning Management
Mount de Sales utilizes PowerSchool as our student information system. Students and parents can track grades, attendance, and progress toward graduation through this secure online system. We also utilize a learning management system through PowerSchool, which allows teachers to generate and share content, post assignments and homework, and assess student progress online.
