MR. J. KOSIR, ACTING DEPARTMENT HEAD
Greetings from the Loyola Technological Studies Department
Why should I consider Technology programs?
The future is not written, but why not prepare yourself? Technology courses offer hands on skills in a variety of areas under the guidance of teachers who have invaluable industry experience. Technology courses provide PATHWAYS to many post secondary programs (at both college and university) as well as apprenticeship and workplace and will give you an advantage as you continue on your journey. Safety is always a priority within all our courses.
Technology programs offered at St. Ignatius of Loyola include:
- Communication Technology
- Computer Science
- Computer Programming
- Construction Technology
- Custom Woodworking
- OYAP (Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program) – Welding
- Hairstyling and Aesthetics
- Hospitality and Tourism
- Technological Design
- Transportation Technology
Take some time and stop by any of our classrooms to see all the exciting things that are happening. Ask the teacher and they will be happy to provide information of the individual programs.
