iPad Program

Incarnate Word Academy has a one-to-one iPad program in which all freshmen are issued a 128GB 5th-generation iPad for the school year.

iPad Distribution

iPad distribution will take place for new students during Freshman/Transfer Orientation on August 10, 2017.

In order for freshmen and incoming transfer students to receive an iPad on this date, each student must bring the following to pick up: 

  • Apple ID
    Each iPad must have a free Apple ID associated with it. Only one Apple ID may be associated with the iPad and this Apple ID must belong to the student. For more information about Apple IDs, visit the Apple ID Support webpage. To create an Apple ID, visit the My Apple ID webpage. Parents are encouraged to setup Family Sharing. New students should create an Apple ID before picking up their iPad.

  • Approved iPad 5th Generation Case (FRESHMEN ONLY)

    Since the new iPad being issued to students is still new, there are limited options available for purchasing a case. IWA is able to procure iPad cases from Apple directly at discounted prices. Below is a list of approved cases. The STM Dux is the only one that is available for purchase on Amazon and other retailers.

    Parents may order a case to be purchased through the school via an online Google Form. Freshmen who purchase the iPad case through IWA will receive the case when issued their iPad. The purchase price will be added to your IWA Smart Tuition account. iPad case orders are due by July 10, 2017.
