Technology at HNHS empowers young women to develop a community of 21st century learners and leaders. Our goal is not only to ready students for college-level study, but also to prepare them to understand and address the challenges of a rapidly changing and interconnected world. The skills they need – critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, collaboration, analysis – are learned through an array of practices (many informed by the particular ways girls learn), hands-on experiences and co-curricular opportunities.
Project Lead the Way is an exciting and engaging series of courses designed to offer hands-on experience with real world applications. The continually expanding offerings include Computer Science, Introduction to Engineering and Human Body Systems. Holy Names is proud to be the only all-girls school in the Bay Area to offer this program.
