Providence High School's Technology Focus Program is designed as a broad-based introduction to various kinds of technology, providing a launching pad for further college study and industry application. Guided by our Catholic values, we believe we have a duty as responsible global citizens and that our skills and talents should be used in the service of our fellow man. Tech Pioneers are expected to apply that philosophy to their studies in the Technology Focus Program, viewing technology as a tool to better society.  

The Technology Focus Program offers a wide variety of experiential learning in four main pathways of technology. This four-year program exposes students to various programming languages, design-thinking frameworks, project management skills, and robotics, and culminates in devising marketing for their original products. At the completion of the program, students will have acquired a solid foundation in modern technology in anticipation of further study at the university level and/or in future career paths.
