Integrated Computer Science & Technology

At CSS, we utilize developmentally-appropriate technology to enhance student engagement and generate a deeper connection with academic content

Our faculty use an ever-expanding palette of technological tools to advance their lessons. Students also utilize technology to enhance their computational thinking and logic. Under the supervision of trained faculty, students hone their Computer Science skills through the use of programming kits, interact with Lego Mindstorm Robotics and Modular Robotics Cubelets, and experiment with multimedia to progress their video recording and editing capabilities. The School also utilizes an iPad lab, a Dell computer lab, Chromebooks, and a wide variety of software programs to enable students to explore new ways of showcasing their work.

A BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program in the Middle and Upper School divisions at CSS further deepens student access to technology resources and platforms. The Colorado Springs School is a Google-based educational institution that uses a variety of Google resources, including Google Classroom, as a classroom management tool.

Through relationships cultivated with alumni, institutions of higher education, corporations, medical professionals, the military and space industries, and local entrepreneurs, CSS students regularly benefit from interactions with STEM professionals and real-world problem solvers. At CSS, we've transitioned beyond a STEM education comprised solely of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics as fundamental building blocks to a STEAM mentality, which includes the technology of Art as we fully embrace problem-based and design-cycle principles.

Trianon Library

For a student body filled with digital natives, the School's historic library, replete with a dark, academic aesthetic and secret passages, functions as progressive hub of dynamic learning and exciting reading. Home to a peer-tutoring program made up of National Honor Society inductees in the Upper School at CSS, the Trianon library is far from being a simple repository of old books. Our Information Technology team and Middle School faculty work collectively to be at the forefront of this educational trend.
