Our 1:1 laptop program at the middle and upper divisions allows teachers to incorporate a wide variety of software applications and tools into their curricula. All students in grades five through twelve and all teachers have their own state-of-the-art laptop computers for use at school and home. Students in the Lower Division have access to classroom computers and iPads.
All Grade 5, 6 and 7 students are issued a Chromebook for use at school.
Grade 8 students are required to have a Chromebook or an Apple MacBook. Laptops for grade 8 students are configured for students during the first week of school.
Grade 9-12 students are required to have a Windows 10 laptop or an Apple MacBook (10.14 or newer). All new students bring computers to one of the BootCamp events during orientation for configuration and installation of software. Stevenson's software suite includes: Windows, macOS, Adobe Creative Cloud, Sophos endpoint protection and G Suite. Students may use iPads or other tablets as a secondary device, but these will usually not suffice as a primary computer.
