21st Century Classrooms

At Christian Academy of Knoxville, we know that technology is essential for 21st-century learning, and we seek to guide our students in digital citizenship from a Christian worldview.

We also value hands-on learning, and thus we gradually introduce students to our 1:1 iPad program as they grow, integrating this technology with the classroom with a solid mixture of hands-on projects.

Our 1:1 iPad program is included in your child's all-inclusive tuition. Optional iPad insurance is available for purchase.

Here are some highlights of our program: 
  • G Suite access (grades 3-12)
  • Office365/Microsoft Office (grades 6-12)
  • Fully wireless campus with online access in all buildings
  • Multimedia projectors and audio in all classrooms
  • Promethean interactive whiteboards in Elementary classrooms
  • Student access to online gradebook viewing through Blackbaud
  • Offsite filtering for all school-issued iPads
  • 27" iMac lab in the High School for advanced instruction
  • MacBook Air cart in the High School
