Computers are integrated into the daily life at Suffield Academy. All student are required to have an Apple laptop that meets our published requirements.
Student Email Everyone is expected to check email at least once every twenty-four hours—classes and student groups rely on email discussion forums, and the campus is covered with wireless or wired networking.
Software The school makes several software packages available to students via a one-time technology fee of $50. This includes software for word-processing, spreadsheets, presentations, and other specialized software used in certain courses. We recommend self-instructional software for students who would like to improve their typing ability [Suffield Academy does not offer a typing course].
Technology Support All students receive services and support including unlimited email messaging, full internet access, limited network file storage, network printing, repair depot service, and training. Boarding and day students have access to network services via wireless connection in all campus buildings and dormitories. Additionally, boarding students have wired connections in their dorm rooms. Day students may also use their home internet connection to access Suffield’s network services from home during the evening or on weekends.
