The GeoTech mission is to provide a forum to inspire and motivate grade K-12 educators to teach about the Earth – its structure, societies, environments, and their interplay, using a wide range of technologies. The unifying theme of the conference is exploration beyond the classroom and instructional technology. The primary goal of the conference is to make a difference in the lives of the students, the community, and to enhance the work of all educators at the local, state, and national level. Plans for 2021 GeoTech are pending. Please check back.

Collegiate Institute at Bishop Dunne
The Collegiate Institute at Bishop Dunne Catholic School works in conjunction with the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) to provide qualified applicants a unique academic experience. The Collegiate Institute is designed to satisfy credit requirements for high school graduation while the student also earns an Associate Degree of Science from DCCCD.
The Collegiate Institute features a college curriculum in the structure of the high school environment, which allows students to continue to participate in extracurricular activities while they achieve dual diplomas. Students earn high school and college credit at the same time at no additional cost.
Collegiate Institute students are grouped as a cohort to foster an accelerated learning environment. Additionally, the cohort model provides the support to develop academic and social skills as well as behaviors and conditions necessary for college completion.
One of the main goals of 2015-2018 Strategic Plan, Opening Doors focuses on people and programs, but the achievement of these objectives requires resources to strengthen current operations and facilities. Our future master plan will respond to the evolving needs of today’s learners and leaders by promoting a dynamic and innovative environment to support the academic, co-curricular, and spiritual mission of the school.
