University Technology Partnership
Founded in 1992, Boston University and The University of Richmond have partnered with over 100 private schools to provide K-12 technology curriculum.
Components of the program for K-8 include integration training for teachers, curriculum designed to be integrated with classroom studies so students use the computer as a tool to develop projects and presentations, and support for the technology teachers as well as University website access for students and parents.
For students in grades 9-12 the curriculum will include a software program similar to that already required by BHS, however, it will involve student-led projects that will enable them to develop a portfolio of their technology projects throughout their high school years.
Electives will also be offered in Life Skills (college planning) and Entrepreneur (skills to create a conceptual enterprise and bring it to market). An Advanced Application Program with the opportunity to test for college credit will also be offered.
