The Student Information Commons marks a new era in research and study opportunities at DePaul Catholic High School. The comfortable, amenity-filled space, designed for individual and group work, recently received a special blessing from Bishop Arthur J. Serratelli to mark its official opening in the Fall of 2014.
“Established to promote academic growth beyond the classroom, the Student Information Commons promotes a sense of ‘ownership’ among our students, which in turn keeps them engaged and motivated,” said Joseph Tweed, President. “The overall DePaul Catholic High School
educational experience is now further enhanced by the addition of collegiate level services available at this centrally located study hub.”
This space is designed as a research and study center featuring numerous student-friendly amenities.These include cushioned armchair desks, bistro-like seating areas, individual study stations and access to technology-based research databases
. In addition, glass-enclosed meeting/group study rooms are available for staff and student use. Finally, the space is rich with resources from high-speed internet access to touch screen computer stations and a Kurzweil learning lab.
