La Salle Academy has a “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) program. Every student is required to have some form of mobile learning device. The purpose is to enhance our curriculum by providing students with a form of direct classroom interaction through the use of technology. This allows teachers to continue to seamlessly integrate technology into the curriculum while allowing students the freedom to interact with content in a multitude of ways.

Digital Citizenship has been implemented into the curriculum to help students understand how to use technology appropriately. Freshmen will receive a more in depth exploration during their Freshman year.
