Today’s students will be connected to the world and asked to lead in a global manner like no generation before. Bergen Catholic is a leader in infusing technology into the classroom and using technology to go beyond the bricks and mortar of the school building. Our one-to-one laptop program provides students with experiential knowledge that combines learning modalities with teacher coaching to develop students who become life-long learners and global citizens.
The Bergen Catholic Mission Statement says we develop leaders. Three years ago the school, using the insights of the students, developed a sequential program in leadership formation. The program is called S.H.I.E.L.D.: Students Helping Inspire Everyone’s Leadership Development. S.H.I.E.L.D. is student developed and student run. There is no substitute for experiencing what is required to be a leader first hand.
