Strake Jesuit College Preparatory in Houston, Texas has been serving the community for over half a century. They have a long tradition of excellence in both their academics & athletics, and have earned a strong admiration among student-families and the communities they serve. Father Johnson, President at Strake Jesuit College Preparatory, saw a revolutionary opportunity to enhance the already renowned campus with new ScoreVision systems.
The ScoreVision system utilizes cutting edge technology through a combination of applications and cloud-based infrastructure that supports digital content. The intuitive design of the apps makes it simple to control the content on the displays, and the content-storage provided by the cloud allows schools to use the displays for a multitude of purposes – well beyond the athletic scope. At Strake Jesuit, students adhere to a guideline of characteristics, one of them being "open to growth." With the integrated ScoreVision system, the opportunity for growth at Strake Jesuit has vastly expanded.
ScoreVision and Strake Jesuit recently hosted an event at the school to unveil the school’s new indoor and outdoor systems with special guest Gary Kubiak. The outdoor display is the highest resolution of any high school scoreboard in the country, and one student enthusiastically mentioned how the resolution remained clear as he stood right next to the 34-foot-tall display.
Attendees were curious and excited about the display’s ability to increase engagement and enhance education.
“We are excited about the ScoreVision systems for how they will greatly improve the fan experience at our games,” said Father Johnson, President, Strake Jesuit College Preparatory.“But most of all because of the educational opportunities they will give our many students who are involved in our television broadcasting curriculum. These are more than scoreboards, they are tools for learning and we can’t wait for the first games.”
Super Bowl-winning coach Gary Kubiak was just as much a raving fan of ScoreVision as the Strake Jesuit members themselves!
