Seattle’s Jesuit College Prep School Since 1891

One-to-One Learning

Seattle Preparatory School provides a technology-rich environment that supports collaborative partnerships, enriches teaching and learning, and encourages meaningful experiences for members of our community. Through the appropriate use of technology, students are engaged in their learning process, become independent problem solvers and participate ethically and safely as digital citizens of the world. Seattle Prep has established a one-to-one environment in which each student has his/her own device.

Microsoft Surface Pro 4

Seattle Prep has been working diligently in preparation for the transition to the Microsoft Surface for the 2017-2018 school year. The school has selected the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 as its required 2-in-1 (laptop-tablet hybrid) device for members of the Class of 2019, Class of 2020, and Class of 2021. Members of the Class of 2018 will continue to utilize their iPads for their senior year at Seattle Prep.

After conducting a great deal of research on the best purchase and distribution method of the Microsoft Surface Pro, we have determined that a bulk purchase by the school has many benefits, including significant savings for families. This also allows us to equip every machine with necessary applications and software for the upcoming year. The cost of the device will be $1,200, which is a significant savings from the retail cost of purchasing hardware, software, and warranty separately. This will include an integrated type cover keyboard, stylus, software, and accidental damage protection for 36 months. Student enrollment/re-enrollment contracts will provide an option for families to purchase the device in one payment or to divide the cost over ten payments using our FACTS tuition management system. Those with demonstrated financial need will receive assistance on this purchase.

Student devices will be distributed in August 2017, prior to the start of school. Device distribution will include an initial orientation and training. Seattle Prep faculty and staff will continue to engage in professional development this year in preparation for the upcoming school year.
