Laptop Requirements

The laptop program at University Christian High School provides students with a tool to expand learning opportunities beyond the traditional classroom experience.  It opens the door to limitless possibilities.  Students may go virtually anywhere and interact with anyone.  With this opportunity comes responsibility.  A laptop is an educational tool, and while at school, should be used in that capacity only.  Using your personal laptop at school is a privilege afforded to students, and the school has established a set of guidelines for security and acceptable use. All students attending UCHS are responsible for providing their own laptops.  Listed below are the minimum requirements.
