New Student iPad Information

Students at Mercy Academy receive iPads when they enroll as a new student (freshmen and transfers). Students are responsible for keeping a case on their iPad at all times. The Class of 2028 and all incoming transfers will receive the 10.9-inch 10th generation iPad, 256 GB with the Logitech Rugged Combo 4 case at JagLife (freshman orientation) in August.

Apple Pencil/Stylus (optional)

Apple ID

  • Your student will need to have an Apple ID to use with her iPad.
  • Your student will be given information at JagLife in August on setting up Apple ID.
  • You are welcome to use an existing Apple ID, and sisters can share an Apple ID.
  • You can create a new Apple ID using Family Sharing.

Textbooks on the iPad

  • Most textbooks can be purchased by creating an MBS account prior to JagLife. Use the "shop by schedule" feature (you will need your student's student ID#). Some items, such as Theology textbook or novels for English, will need to be purchased after your student receives her iPad at JagLife. Directions for downloading books purchased through MBS will be sent to the student email address entered during the checkout process.
