As a part of Benet Academy’s Digital Education all students are expected to bring a fully charged Apple iPad to school every day. The minimum required iPad is the latest 10.2” iPad (2019). Students should also have an Apple ID on their iPad where they can be permitted to install applications as necessary.
iPads can be purchased anywhere, but Apple does provide a discount for Benet students. You can either access that discount here through the Apple Education website, or by visiting your local Apple Store and letting them know you are attending Benet Academy. It is suggested that you have some sort of warranty on your iPad to protect against damage. Apple offers Apple Care + at an additional cost. You can also find a warranty through a third party. A keyboard case is not required but highly encouraged.
Benet Academy provides a high-speed wireless internet connection to all student iPads. This connection is secured through web filtering that allows students access only to approved websites.
Students will also be assigned a school email account that is provided through the Google G Suite. This account covers a wide range of online resources. Students are expected to use this account for school related business.
Every student is expected to read and understand the Acceptable Use Policy which can be found in their student handbook. The AUP is updated yearly. All students must sign off on their understanding of the AUP each year.
