Marian High School continues to advancing the use of technology in the classroom as a learning tool. Offerings of the skill sets and outcomes of technology are necessary to prepare our students for college and beyond in today's constantly changing world. Working to that end, Marian High School strives to offer students a variety of technology-related courses and increasing technology experiences in all classes.
Students will experience writing resumes, using styles and procedures for college term papers, and creating artistic fliers, brochures, and web pages using Microsoft Word. Studying Excel and PowerPoint will provide the skills necessary for in-depth use of these tools stressing data analysis methodologies and presentation skills.
Other technology offerings include use of graphic design hard/software, dedicated yearbook/publishing tools, Marian’s Library Media Center on-line data search/retrieval and web-based research solutions, and a variety of technology-related classes jointly offered with Brother Rice. The overall focus is on preparing students for daily living with the tools of technology.

These uses continue to expand and provide students with increased opportunities for creating digital materials, online collaboration, virtual experiences, digital text books and scholarly research (e-library); all 21st century real-world skills.
