2019-2020 Upper School Laptop Program

Greetings St. Andrew’s Upper School Parents! 

We are very excited to welcome your children to school for the 2019-20 school-year. Included below is information on the three laptop models we offer, and how to purchase the laptop your child will use at school.

We require that incoming Upper School students purchase one of the three selected SAS laptops. Because our school's curriculum relies so much on technology, students must bring the school approved laptop to school each day. Other laptops are not allowed and will not be supported.

Effective use of laptops in the curriculum calls for one of these standardized platforms which ensures that:
  • Each student will be equipped with technology and software that is explicitly tied to the class curriculum
  • The Faculty can prepare and conduct classes knowing exactly what technology and software students have, and be better prepared to assist them with just-in-time support
  • Our technology department will be best prepared to quickly and efficiently troubleshoot and repair the student laptops
