Mission and Philosophy

The Faculty of the Computer Science Department at Xavier College Preparatory are committed to utilizing computer technology in every aspect of the classroom and school community in the pursuit of academic excellence. We strive to prepare young women with knowledge, skills, and integrity to meet the challenges of a changing global society in a positive and productive manner. We want our students to not just learn to use a particular software program, but to be successful in a time of rapid technological change. Our emphasis has changed from memorizing facts to learning how to acquire new information and learn the skill of teaching oneself how to use new technologies as tools for productivity and self growth.
