Technology/Laptops

The GCHS Department of Technology would like to extend a heartfelt welcome to all transfer families. We are excited to meet in person, but, in the meantime, we want all families to know we are eagerly preparing for your arrival.

More specific information will be forthcoming after families finish the enrollment process, but we thought all families would appreciate the following information.

And as always, if you have any questions or need assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact Mark Phillips, Director of Technology, at mphillips@guerincatholic.org.

  • Mac Laptops: A gentle reminder that Guerin Catholic is a one-to-one Apple laptop school, and each family is expected to procure one of the MacBook computers prescribed by the school’s “Student Computer Specification” guide. All families should feel more than welcome to email Mark Phillips, Director of Technology, at mphillips@guerincatholic.org if they would like assistance in deciding which model laptop would be best for their student.
  • New Accounts To Be Distributed After Each Family Finishes The Enrollment Process: After submitting all enrollment documentation, new families will receive communication from the Technology Team with information regarding what types of online platforms are utilized by both students and parents. Furthermore, that communication will include easy to follow and interactive instructions that guide families on how to access those online platforms.
  • Have more questions? We got you covered: All new families are more than welcome to connect with one of our Technology Team members whenever they have questions. You may email Mark Phillips, Director of Technology, directly at mphillips@guerincatholic.org, or submit an email directly to the GCHS Help Desk at helpdesk@guerincatholic.org. Either avenue will connect you with a member of the team.
