Our mission is to prepare our students for the highest level of academic and intellectual development. With this in mind, we have developed a one-to-one laptop and iPad initiative that will introduce students to technology in the Lower School and allow them to transition seamlessly into the Middle and Upper School with a firm understanding of the technology at their disposal.
Lower School iPad Program
In the Lower School the one-to-one iPad program begins in grade 5 and continues into grade 6. Each iPad is owned by the School and provided to the student after their technology orientation in the fall. Grades 3 and 4 have access to iPad and netbook carts.
Middle School Program
Middle School students participate in a one-to-one iPad program. Students purchase iPads directly from Apple. Holton provides a list of educational apps to be purchased and downloaded prior to orientation in the fall.
Upper School Laptop Initiative
All students in grades 9-12 are required to purchase a Lenovo laptop, Lenovo tablet, or Apple MacBook Air. By requiring each student to bring a tablet to school for daily use, we are able to increase equitable access to digital resources. Additionally, it is important that students be able to move seamlessly between school and home, using a device that they know and for which they are responsible. This practice will further their learning both in and out of the classroom.
