Each student must purchase his or her own iPad. The average cost for an iPad that meets our minimum specifications with a protective cover and a 2-year warranty plan is approximately $400 to $500.
Gonzaga Prep has partnered with Huppins, a local electronics store, to provide Gonzaga Prep students, alumni, and families with special pricing on iPads and related accessories. Please see our Educational Technology
page for more information on iPads.Financial Assistance for iPad purchase:
Financial assistance for the purchase of iPads is available in one of the following forms:
- Financing Plan through the Numerica Credit Union: If you wish to finance the purchase of the iPad, Numerica Credit Union is offering a special loan program for Gonzaga Prep families. Click HERE for more information on how to apply for the iPad loan from the Numerica Credit Union.
- Grants: Students who need additional financial assistance in purchasing their iPads should email the Treasurer's Office a request for iPad financial assistance to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 16, 2018, for the 2018-19 school year. The amount of the grants will vary based on financial need but all families will be expected to pay at least half the cost of the iPad. All awards made under this program will be coordinated for purchases through Huppins.
Students must purchase their textbooks annually. Most textbooks are in digital form to be used on the iPads. The student's textbooks cost between $70 and $300 on average each year.
The textbook list and links to purchase them are published in July each year on our virtual textbook store. Please see our Virtual Text Bookstore
