Since its founding in 1925, Bethlehem Catholic has been committed to providing the best educational opportunities for our students. The implementation of a 1:1 computer program was of the utmost importance in maintaining this commitment.

Vision Becomes Reality

The 1-1 computer initiative began with our 2022 Golden Gala’s Emotional Appeal, which was dedicated to the process of upgrading our network infrastructure to handle the demands of a 1:1 computer program.  The 2023 Golden Gala’s Emotional Appeal further supplemented the network infrastructure, and provide required accessories and security for each student’s laptop. The culmination of the project came about through the generosity of the John and Kathy Feehan Foundation and its annual commitment to providing every student with a laptop.

The rollout of our 1:1 computer program began on February 20, 2023, with one class each week receiving their laptops.  One class per week received their computers, with a class per week receiving their computers.  Each of our students now has their own professional grade Dell laptop to use in school, at home, and to take with them upon graduation. In addition, each student received a protective sleeve for their laptop, security enhancements, and charging capabilities throughout the school.  This development in Bethlehem Catholic’s education will allow our Golden Hawks to soar to new academic heights.

At Bethlehem Catholic we seek excellence in everything. This program is just one of the steps we are taking to make that vision a reality for our students.  Bethlehem Catholic is incredibly grateful for its benefactors, especially the John and Kathy Feehan Foundation, for transforming our vision into a reality.
