Providing student opportunities
Aquinas Catholic has multiple Career Studies Courses to prepare students for their future. Entrepreneurship, Journalism, and Computer Apps are a few examples. The Aquinas Building Trades Program builds a house each school year. The cabinetry throughout the house was built and designed by students using CAD Programming.
Mr. Tony Smith attended The Academy of Scholastic Broadcasting five-day workshop for broadcast and video teachers in Springfield, MO before adding Introduction to Broadcasting to the Aquinas Career Studies Course list.
By adding Daktronics equipment, Introduction to Broadcasting students will be able to gain skills that directly translate to real-world industry applications. Daktronics supplies a curriculum designed to assist educators in planning and executing and engaging course that introduces high school student to live event production.
