Industrial Technology Department
The Department of Industrial Technology is designed to offer students an exploratory and developmental experience.
Students are exposed to a variety of courses that give some insight into the materials, methods, processes and careers related to technology. This is reinforced by making the community an extension of the school and classroom. Characteristics which are stressed are safety, accuracy, dependability, promptness, care of equipment, interest in technical fields, cooperation, and the importance of planning and following instructions.
Industrial Technology prepares students to function as knowledgeable citizens in our increasingly technological world.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
