ST. JAMES ACADEMY LAPTOP PURCHASE PROGRAM
All freshmen are required to purchase a laptop to be used during high school. Laptops are purchased at a group discount by St. James Academy.
The cost is passed on to families, who have the option to pay for the laptop in full at the beginning of freshman year or spread the cost out over four years. We offer a discount of $150 for full payment. In either case, the student will have use of the laptop year-round and keep it after graduation.
Laptops MUST be purchased from the school in order to ensure uniformity and to keep repair costs down. We will handle laptop repair and will issue a loaner to any student whose laptop needs repair. There may be a per incident charge depending on the type of repair.
St. James Academy will load any necessary software programs onto the laptops and will control student internet and advanced preference access. At the end of senior year, all licensed programs belonging to the school as well as internet restrictions will be removed before the laptop is released to the student. Microsoft Office will still be available to the student after graduation.
A description of the laptop that will be purchased for freshmen in the class of 2023 follows:
- MacBook Pro 13-inch with Retina Display
- 2.3GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5, Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz
- 128GB SSD Drive
- 8GB RAM
- Model number MPXQ2LL/A
The full cost of the laptop is $1,450. Annual installment payments are $400 each year.
The price includes Microsoft Office for Mac, 4-year AppleCare protection, and the required tote bag which protects the equipment throughout high school (no other totes or backpacks are allowed).
If a student withdraws from St. James Academy before graduation, the remaining balance owed for the laptop will be due at that time.
