iPad 1:1 Learning Environment

Mr. Andrew Murray works with a student.We are proud to be one of the first schools in the area to utilize technology to its fullest by enhancing the teaching and learning experience through our iPad 1:1 learning program. Students participate in an innovative and highly engaging learning environment that has transformed the educational experience at Central Catholic.


Mr. Ringuette working with a student.

Students use their iPads in each class as:

  • A medium for their direct participation in - and interaction with - the learning process;
  • A means of richer collaboration with their teachers and other students;
  • A powerful organizational tool;
  • A vehicle for research; and
  • A tool for completing and submitting assignments.

iPad Buying Guide


Each freshman will be required to own an iPad with a minimum of 128 GB of memory, 6th generation or newer, and a case with a keyboard.

Buying Information:

  • We recommend the 6th Generation iPad (supports Apple Pen). 3G/4G iPads are not needed. iPads that do have 3G/4G access will need to have that feature disabled while used at school.
  • Students must purchase a case with a keyboard. We recommend the Zagg Ultrathin or Portfolio keyboard cases. If students already have a keyboard case or personal preference, they are welcome to use it.
  • You can purchase the iPad from any Apple store, the online Apple Education store, or another authorized Apple retailer.
  • Care & Insurance: We strongly recommend that you purchase a case with a keyboard to protect your child’s iPad from accidental damage (see above). Additionally, CCHS recommends that you purchase insurance coverage for accidental damage. The device may be covered by a homeowner insurance policy, but repair costs for damage may not exceed the deductible. To pursue extra coverage, you can check with the retailer where you purchase the iPad or contact your family insurance agency or AppleCare+. We recommend you purchase AppleCare+
    • AppleCare+: In addition to providing coverage for up to two incidents of accidental damage ($49 service fee for each incident), AppleCare+ also includes software and technical support. Visit AppleCare+ for more details. The purchase price, which does not include the service fees, is $99.

“Central Catholic faculty weave technology into the entire curriculum. We were one of the first schools in the region to implement a 1:1 learning environment through our iPad initiative, and this is the third year that students have been learning problem solving and critical thinking skills through coding during their freshman or sophomore year – a requirement unique to Central Catholic.”
