  • Bring Your Own Device Program (BYOD)

    Students entering Pre-K – Grade 1 will need an iPad.
    Students entering Grades 2–4 will need a Chromebook.
    Students entering Grades 5–8 will need a MacBook. If you intend for your child to use the MacBook in ninth grade and you have a sense of where your child will go to high school, you may wish to consider reviewing the high school’s minimum device specifications prior to purchasing the MacBook. Some high school requirements exceed ours.
