Computer Department

Lincoln Lutheran provides three computer labs on campus. Two labs contain Windows computers and one contains Macintosh computers. In the PC labs we hold classes like:  Computer Applications, Business Management, Programming 1-4 and our middle school Technology Education program. In the Macintosh lab most of the design classes take place: Website Design, Video Editing, Multimedia Applications, and Journalism.

Although Lincoln Lutheran is a small school, we are proud to offer our students the same computer classes that they can take at any of the Public Schools in Lincoln.

New Devices NOT Required

Just to clear up any any misconceptions that may exist...

Lincoln Lutheran will put out new device requirements each year as we evaluate what is working well and what isn't working well for students. This does not mean that you have to buy a new device every year. Even if the device your child has is one that we no longer recommend, or one that doesn't meet the new requirements, they can still use that device.
