All new students enrolling at Saint Patrick High School will need to purchase an iPad directly from the school. Outside personal iPads are not allowed to be used.
By purchasing the device through Saint Patrick, we will be able to install mobile device management tools on the iPads; this will allow us to control access to various apps and functions and to block the downloading of other apps that do not have an educational purpose. This will help both parents and the school in ensuring that the iPad is used to enhance our young men’s learning experience. Upon graduation, the mobile device management controls will be released and the graduate will be able to do what he wishes to do with the iPad.
Through Apple, Saint Patrick has secured a pricing option of $650.00 which includes a 64G iPad, Logitech Rugged Keyboard Case and 4 years of AppleCare for Education. The costs for apps, textbooks, and workbooks that Saint Patrick will order in bulk for the students will be added to the tuition account at the beginning of the year.
iPad’s purchased this year will be repaired through Apple. Saint Patrick has partnered with OnCallers for repairs on previously purchased iPads. At this time, they offer Saint Patrick families a 20% discount for any repairs. Families may bring iPads directly to OnCallers or contact Tom Christman at the contact information below. Please contact Mr. Christman for repairs to iPads purchased for this current school year.
If you have any questions or concerns, contact Tom Christman ’01, Director of Technology, at 773-282-8844 ext. 250 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
