Diocese of Charleston Technology Mission Statement
St. Anne Catholic School uses technology as one tool that will prepare our students for life in the 21st Century and prepare them for the highly collaborative digital world in which they will one day enter. We offer one-one technology from kindergarten through grade twelve:

The MacBook Air is used in grades 9-12
The Google Suite for Education is used by all classrooms which connects students and teachers to teach and learn from anywhere.

By using Google Classroom in Person and in Remote Learning, our students are resilient and ready for transitions at any time!
