List of 4 items.

  • Curriculum, content and tools that are current and relevant

    Critical thinking, problem solving, communications and collaboration, creativity and innovation, and digital literacy are the 21st century skills necessary for our Explorers to thrive in an increasingly information-rich world.
  • Instruction that adapts to the needs of the individual student

    Students may choose apps that best facilitate their learning experience and have easy access to a multitude of educational online resources to compliment the subject matter they are studying (ie... applications to specific learning activities, e-books, explanatory videos, dictionaries).  Finding resources that appeal to their unique learning style, may motivate students to engage more in the learning process.
  • Learning that is not dependent on time and place

    Columbus’ 1-to-1 iPad learning ecosystem complements our existing Smart interactive whiteboards, databanks and other digital resources.  It provides networked technology for effective two-way communication and collaboration between teachers and students to extend learning beyond the classroom.  Flipped and blended learning is increasingly the way our teachers continue to challenge students to become life-long learners.
  • Resourceful … Creative … The iPad furthers 21st Century learning

    Our school features the seamless integration of cutting edge technology and WiFi access throughout the entire campus. Our one-to-one iPad program helps ensure that our students receive the best interactive and innovative blended learning experience.

Christopher Columbus High School is a private, Roman Catholic, college-preparatory high school, conducted by the Marist Brothers of the Schools. We aim to make Jesus Christ known and loved, as we prepare young men for higher education and for their continuous challenge of harmonizing faith, culture and life. We foster a family spirit among all who are committed to the success of the school and promote opportunities to work together as a community of learners. 

Columbus is fully accredited by Cognia and is a member of the Marist Association of Secondary schools, the National Catholic Education Association and the Independent Schools of South Florida.
