Bring Your Own Device
Students at St. Mary’s are required to bring a laptop computer to school each day, and they can expect to use their computers regularly and in multiple classes.
The minimum device capabilities for BYOD are simple:
- Laptop computer (not a tablet)
- Must be able to run all features of the Google Chrome web browser
- Battery life of at least 4 hours
A Chromebook is the minimum device requirement (and also our recommended device). They are available new for under $200 and are widely available online and at retailers like Staples, Best Buy, and Walmart. Students who are unable to obtain a computer will be able to check out a Chromebook from the Library for the year.
*Please note, 5th graders will not participate in BYOD.
