In selecting an iPad case, the three most important requirements are:

  1. Impact protection for the corners, sides and back (plastic or rubber is best). Fabric cases do not last or protect well so they not allowed!
  2. Protection for the glass screen when not in use.
  3. The ability to prop the iPad up at an angle for better typing ergonomics.

SMA iPads are owned by the school and must be returned at the end of each school year. Students are given the option to purchase the iPads at a reduced price only upon graduating from SMA.

St. Mary's Academy 1:1 iPad program and beyond ...

We began our 1:1 iPad program in Fall of 2013 and it has been very successful. The dramatic changes in classroom learning have been extraordinary and we strive to not only improve on that model but to provide information to other schools on how they can transition to a 1:1 iPad program smoothly.
