1:1 Laptop Program

For more than 17 years our students have benefited from a 1:1 laptop program, making us one of the most experienced schools at integrating technology in New Jersey.

The 1:1 Laptop Program (one laptop to one student) supports the Kent Place School course of studies and affords students equitable access to hardware, software and network resources. The laptop is a technology tool for learning and developing communication, collaboration and problem-solving skills necessary for participation and leadership in a global community. Like our Honor Code, intentional and meaningful technology use in the course of studies and student activities engages students in digital citizenship.
