Purchasing iPads and Accessories
Parents are free to purchase the iPad at any retail store or via the web. The Mount has partnered with Springboard Media for those who wish to finance the purchase of the iPad Air. Springboard will offer 0% interest over 12 months. You may call 215.988.7777 and tell them you are purchasing for Mount St. Joseph Academy.
Students may have an iPad Pro, iPad Mini, or an iPad Air. We ask that the iPad have a minimum of 32GB, preferably 64GB, or for the Pro, 128GB. It must have WiFi capability. Parents are free to purchase iPads with 4G (Internet capability via cellular) access, but the student must agree not to use this capability while in school. We cannot provide Internet safety for our Mounties unless they use our WiFi. Parents are encouraged to purchase Apple Care, an insurance program that covers damage. It does not cover theft.
Each iPad must have a cover/case in order to protect it.
Students are free to purchase a Bluetooth keyboard or a cover that contains a keyboard. Each iPad must have a sturdy cover/case to protect it and we encourage parents to make sure that the student’s name is located somewhere on the device.
