The work of the Mary Catherine and George Hoff Technology Center ensures that Saint Peter School students are equipped with the technology and digital knowledge and skills required to be successful learners and leaders in the 21st century. First established in 1998 and rededicated in 2015, the Hoff Technology Center has evolved, moving beyond its early days as a space primarily for teaching core computer understanding and skills. Its functions and capabilities have advanced as the world has become more technology intensive and technology has permeated the curriculum. Now combined with the library’s books and resources, the Hoff Technology Center serves as a central classroom for students to acquire essential technology skills and expertise and as a lab for developing greater digital fluency.
The Hoff Technology Center was made possible by a gift from Ted Hoff and Kathleen O’Connell in memory of Ted’s parents, Mary Catherine and George Hoff, who were passionate supporters of Catholic education. Ted and Kathleen’s sons, Tommy and Michael Hoff, are proud alumni of Saint Peter School.
