Students entering grade 5 (new or returning), we ask that you buy a new iPad with warranty to last you through grade 8. New students in grade 6, we ask that you buy a new iPad with warranty to last you through grade 8.

If you already have a useable computer that has the required specs, you should not need to buy anything new.

DSR Computer

DSR is an authorized reseller of computer technology equipment for Toshiba, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Acer, Dell, Apple, Fujitsu and Sony among many others. They are also an authorized service provider (warranty/non-warranty repairs) for the listed computer manufacturers.

**PLEASE NOTE** DSR has no affiliation with Holton-Arms. They are a vendor that has provided service to us and a lot of our peer schools for many years. If you purchase from them, you are not “buying through the school” – you are simply purchasing from a vendor we know and trust. All sales through DSR are final and subject to their return policies.

Microsoft Office

Most of our students use G Suite for their productivity apps. If you would prefer to use Microsoft Office, a free copy can be provided for Apple and PC platforms. Instructions on how to install will be provided at orientation in August.

The technology team is looking forward to working with all of you in the coming year. Please watch for detailed information about pricing, financial aid, and ordering this spring.

Please let us know if you have any questions,
