Shorecrest is committed to providing students with the tools necessary to learn and develop the skills, knowledge and dispositions to help them be successful in a connected, digital world. In addition to ensuring our students have strong foundational technology skills, Shorecrest wants each of its graduates to possess the following qualities as outlined by the ISTE Standards for Students:
Shorecrest encourages students to use personal digital devices to help them take greater ownership of the learning process.
Shorecrest launched a 1:1 school-issued MacBook laptop program in the Upper School in the 2022-2023 school year. The Class of 2026 was the first group of students to switch from the Upper School BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program to this school-issued laptop program. Each year a new grade level will be added to the program. This is an extension of the school-issued device program in the Middle School. A technology fee of $525/year will be charged each August. Students will own the device at the end of four years.
9th Grade: Laptops will be distributed at Orientation on August 15.
10th Grade: Students may pick up their devices from the Technology Office on the 2nd floor of Charger Commons beginning August 7.
11th-12th Grade: Students are required to bring in an iPad and/or Mac laptop for their personal learning device. Students may choose the device that best fits their individual needs and is on the accepted device list below. All students are required to register their personal devices with the school.
Students in ninth and tenth grade should visit the Tech Office on the 2nd floor of Charger Commons to have their school-issued device repaired. A loaner laptop will be provided.
Shorecrest does not provide loaner laptops to students in grades 11-12. Students, however, may choose to borrow a loaner iPad while waiting for a laptop repair. A loaner iPad may be checked out for up to two weeks. Shorecrest's Technology Team will help set up the temporary iPad with the student's Apple ID.
If you need a loaner device, please email [email protected] or stop by the Tech Office on the 2nd floor of Charger Commons.

Shorecrest will not support other OS devices including Windows laptops, tablets and Chromebooks. Shorecrest is not able to manage these devices, control the security patch level of other operating systems, or enforce anti-virus software on these devices. Not being able to adequately control these devices poses security risks to our network. Additionally, our infrastructure is not designed to support Windows devices on a large scale the same way we can with Apple devices. Finally, many teachers use iBooks and iOS apps in their classroom that may not be available to students on Windows machines.
In order to protect our network and ensure the integrity of our ecosystem, students who choose to violate the school’s Responsible Use Policy and log in to our network with a Windows device will have restricted access. These restrictions will limit or impede their day to day school operations.
Students can email [email protected] with any questions. Students can also visit the Tech Office on the 2nd floor of Charger Commons. The office is located just to the left of the entrance.
Students are expected to follow all rules and guidelines outlined in Shorecrest's Responsible Use Policy for Educational Technology (RUP) and Upper School iPad/Laptop Contract. Updated policies and contracts will be sent to families during the summer. Students will review the policies and contracts within their advisory programs during the first week of school.
Students entering ninth grade are required to attend a Technology orientation on Monday, August 14. Students new to Shorecrest (10-12) are required to attend a Technology orientation on Tuesday, August 15. Information regarding orientation times will be sent to families in July.

Shorecrest will have loaner iPad devices available for checkout to students who are awaiting iPad repairs or replacement. Loaners may be checked out for up to two weeks.
