WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Archbishop Stepinac High School, ranked as one of the country’s top 50 Catholic High Schools, has released a video about how its innovative, personalized blended learning environment is preparing students for post secondary success.
The six-minute presentation was produced by Frank Portanova, vice principal for Academics and Curriculum and Stepinac alum, who played a key role in developing and implementing the school’s first-of-its-kind all digital textbook library in partnership with Pearson Education.
Portanova explains how Stepinac’s technologically advanced academic platform, a project that began five years ago, was created with two goals in mind for all of its students.
First, the administration wanted to inspire life-long learning and make intellectual curiosity a mainstay and permanent part of their lives. Secondly, it hoped to provide students a strong academic foundation to help succeed at college.
As a result of Stepinac’s success as a pioneer in developing and implementing an advanced technological platform, Portanova said that the school has become a “standard bearer for curriculum innovation,” citing the visits of educators from the region, nation and overseas. “They have marveled at how well we have trained our faculty to use the new technology, the amount of money we have and are investing in the infrastructure and the time we spent in developing and testing the digital library before we launched it.”
