Required and Recommended Apps

Pegasus teachers have selected the best free resources available; however, a few required apps may cost a minimal amount. Upgraded versions of the free or “lite” apps may be offered  for a nominal fee. Please read the descriptions in the App Store to determine whether the free or paid version is right for you (if both options are available).

Teachers may communicate with you directly throughout the year if there is a need for additional apps related to specific projects.

We recommend updating to the latest OS before downloading apps. Click here to read more about updating the iOS.

Device Options

Grades 6 and 7: All sixth and seventh graders will be required to purchase a MacBook and bring it to class daily.
