Atlantic Technical College and Technical High School Receives Dart Foundation Grant

Thanks to a grant from the Dart Foundation, Atlantic Technical College and Technical High School students enjoy a traditional classroom transformed into an active learning center.

Congratulations to Atlantic Technical College and Technical High School for receiving a $98,700 grant from the Dart Foundation. The grant funds have been used to enhance the delivery of instruction in Information Technology (IT) programs by enhancing curriculum and content, while developing job-specific skills and creating an authentic work-base culture.

Atlantic Technical has transitioned a traditional classroom into an active learning center aimed at fostering a collaborative educational environment that mirrors real-world situations and its challenges. This project supports programs through access to improved technology and specialized furniture. Students have access to a variety of collaborative work areas combined with enhanced lecture spaces that make use of portable and tabletop white-boards, network equipment stations, and multimedia areas for use in brainstorming, problem-solving and presentations.
