Students are required to bring their own iPad charged to school every day.
All student iPads must support iPadOS 15. All current iPads on sale at Apple and many used iPads will support iPadOS 15.
Please check before purchase to ensure that your student's device will support iPadOS 15.
Storage: We recommend purchasing a device with 64 GB -128 GB of storage. Students can also store files in the cloud using Google Docs as we provide each student with a Google account.
If your family needs to purchase an iPad, here are some options for purchase:
- Refurbished Section at Apple
- Best Buy
- If your family has any difficulties in purchasing an iPad, please contact Sister Sharon Brannen (email@example.com)
If you have questions on the purchase or requirements of an iPad and educational apps for the iPad, please email our Director of IT, Jamie Pruden (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We find that it can be beneficial for families to purchase insurance for their student's iPad that extends beyond the manufacturer's warranty (which doesn't often cover damage or loss). In our experience, about 20% of students will experience damage or loss of an iPad during their time at the school.
If your family is buying an iPad from Apple, AppleCare+ is an option that covers drops and spills (but not loss) with a deductible. Check out their page for more information.
What if I have Questions?
Students who are Jon Sobrino Scholars as part of their Financial Assistance should contact Sr. Sharon Brannen, email@example.com about additional options. If you have questions on the requirements (specs) of an iPad and educational iPad apps, please email our Director of IT, Jamie Pruden (firstname.lastname@example.org).
