Is the Satellite Center geared for Vocational Education or College Prep Students?

To succeed in the modern world, children need both knowledge and skills in a work environment.  This need is driven not only by workforce demands for high-performance employees who can plan, collaborate, apply what they know, communicate, negotiate, explore, interpret and create, but also by the need to help all young people learn civic responsibility and master their new roles as global citizens.  In response to these needs we ensure team members leave the Satellite Center with both the knowledge and skills needed for future success.

How do students travel to/from the Satellite Center?

All team members have the option of either driving their personal vehicle to the Satellite Center or ride a bus fro DHS or HHS and back to school after the class is over.

All meals are eating at DHS or HHS during regular lunch times; however if a team member drives and would like to bring a meal to the Satellite Center to eat in the Rotunda before classes begin they are welcome to do that as well.

How are the community/parents involved?

All community members (parents are included in this group) are a welcome addition to any project we are working on.  Examples: Judging Panel for Products, Professional Development, Cafe Days, Field Experiences, Focus Groups, Audience for Presentations, etc.

Is it true that ever team member recieves a labtop?

All laptops are leased to Satellite Center team members for a nominal fee for one year.  The team member and parent/guardian signs a lease agreement at the beginning of the year stating all responsibilities that come with leasing the laptop. In addition the parish purchases insurance which covers major damage to the laptop.  All small technology issues are covered under the parish's hardware maintenance contract and are resolved by the parish's IT services.
