Suffield Academy maintains a campus-wide, fiber-optic gigabit switched Ethernet network that connects all buildings, including the dormitories, classrooms, and faculty homes. Each boarding student is provided with a data drop in her/his room, as well as a telephone jack. Capabilities of the network include email, electronic bulletin boards on our intranet, a WWW server (with student space) and full access to the Internet via our high-speed fiber-optic connection to the Connecticut Education Network. In addition, voicemail is provided to each member of the community. Each dormitory is equipped with a laser printer, and other public, networked printers are sprinkled throughout campus. Day students and faculty members can connect to our campus network via wireless access points throughout campus. Access to email and other school services is available off-campus as well.
