As Assistant Headmaster I oversee the general direction of our academic programs at Pickens Academy. The goal of our academic programs is to prepare our students for the digital world of the 21st century. We currently are in year 2 of a technology plan that has transformed our learning environment into one that supports digital and mobile learning. To be college or career ready in the 21st century, one must be able to adapt to multiple forms of technology and access various information/problem solve across those technologies. Our students and teachers in grades 5-12 began the transition to a 1:1 environment this year using chrome books. This transition in the end has proven to enhance our curriculum and increased the rigor of our instruction. Pickens Academy is now able to expand what we offer to our students through online courseware and digital textbooks/resources.
If there are any questions regarding curriculum, classroom instruction, or technology please do not hesitate to contact me.
