Technology

Squaw Valley Academy – Bay Area is located in the hub of worldwide technological innovation, Silicon Valley, California. SVA-Bay Area views technology as a proactive, creative tool for educational use. We are also aware of its potential pitfalls and distractions. As such, we strive to direct students toward techniques of responsible, effective use of all electronic devices.

All students at SVA-Bay Area are provided with MacBook laptop computers for academic use. Additionally, tablets for schoolwork and personal use are highly recommended. Usage of tablets and MacBook laptops are monitored during class hours and study hall in order to ensure appropriate use. Internet content filters may also be put in place when applicable.

Cell phones are allowed on campus, and use is generally limited to the hours after classes end. Use may also be restricted during study hall, athletic activities, and overnight. Students are expected to use cell phones only at appropriate times, and in locations, which are not intrusive to other members of the community.
