Technology Days

Sacred Heart Academy has a one to one laptop program. In the fall, each member of the Class of 2021 will begin classes where technology will be used on a daily basis. Students who attend summer sessions at Sacred Heart Academy will use their laptops as part of the class, and we want to ensure that they have their laptops before classes begin. With that in mind, we have planned the following Parent Tech Nights and Student Tech Days. Please sign up for the option that works best for your family by going to www.sacredhearthamden.org, select QUICK LINKS, choose CLASS of 2021 TECHNOLOGY TRAINING. Please sign up as soon as possible so we know how many students are coming to each session. Thank you for your cooperation with this!
