Technology

The Technology Department provides tech support and printing services to students Monday through Friday from 7:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. We may be reached at 949.493.9010 or help.desk@jserra.org.

Returning students do not need to re-register their laptops unless they have a new laptop or have had hardware changes such as a new wireless card. All class of 2020 students must register their laptops. Newly enrolled students in the classes of 2017, 2018, and 2019 must register their laptops as well. Laptop registration may only be completed online.

LAPTOP OPTIONS

Students are required to purchase their own laptops. This means students can select their systems of choice by ordering online or going to stores such as BestBuy, Costco, Dell, Gateway, Frys, Microcenter, etc. The school will be teaching through the standard Microsoft Office Suite (Word/Excel/PowerPoint) software. The classes of 2018 and 2019 may use any operating system (PC or Apple). The class of 2020 and 2021 must use a PC-based system (i.e., no Apple products). 

The Classes of 2020 and 2021 are the first classes required to bring laptops that have touch screens with a digitizer pen. This will allow students to fully realize the goals of the school’s Technology Plan. Laptops with tablet capability will help make learning more interactive in the classroom and will have the ancillary benefit of reducing the use of paper on campus.

In terms of the specific device requirements, they are as follows:

  • PC-based (no Apple/Mac devices)
  • Windows 10
  • Tablet mode (i.e. screen folds or separates to allow laptop to be used as a tablet)
  • Touch screen with digitizer pen
  • 4GB memory
  • 128 GB hard drive
  • Webcam
  • Wireless 802.11 A/C
  • Intel Core i5 or comparable

Microsoft Office 365 is provided by the school. Below are examples of models, with currently listed prices, that meet the school’s requirements.

Of course, other models can be used as long as the above parameters are met. If you have any questions, please contact help.desk@jserra.org
