St. Andrew’s has a variety of technology resources available for both our students and their parents to use.

Online Campus Community

All Students and Parents have access to our Online Campus Community, which is accessible by logging into our webpage here or at the top of this page.

Student and Parent Pages

Logging into our website with your web credentials (these have been previously provided  to you or can be obtained by clicking the “forgot user id/password” link)  will direct you to your personal homepage where you have quick access to announcements, recent grades, class information, and more.  From here you can also access NetClassroom for a deeper look into academic progress.

My Saint Dashboard

From your homepage a link is available to your My Saint Dashboard.  This page is a centralized location to access resources throughout St. Andrew’s.  From here you can reset your web credentials, register for events, view news, browse directories, find links to all of our technology resources and view tutorials on

Microsoft Office 365.

St. Andrew’s utilizes Microsoft Office 365 to provide our student body access to email and other tools to enhance education.

Student Email

Upon registration all students St. Andrew’s receive a student email address which is accessible through our home page (under academics -> technology) or the My Saint Dashboard.  School email can also be configured on mobile devices (Smart Phones, Tablets, etc.) However, data rates may apply when not connected to our internal Wi-Fi.  Detailed instructions on how to access student email and connect it to different devices can be found on your My Saint Dashboard, under Technology & Communication > Technology Tutorials.

St. Andrew's OneDrive

The St. Andrew’s OneDrive is an area of cloud storage dedicated to each student (similar to DropBox or Google Drive).  Students can upload work to their OneDrive which they can access from any internet enabled device.  They can also be shared with other St. Andrew’s users for group work.  Microsoft Office files uploaded to the OneDrive can also be edited in Microsoft Office Online, a web based version of the Office Suite that has a majority of Office functionality without the need to install.

Microsoft Office Pro Plus

All St. Andrew’s students can download and install the latest version of Microsoft Office to any PC or Mac device.  Detailed instructions on how to download your copy can be found on your My Saint Dashboard, under Technology & Communication > Technology Tutorials.

 

Technology Infrastructure

St. Andrew’s Wi-Fi

There is full Wi-Fi coverage over most of the St. Andrew’s Campus..  During the school day students are encouraged to connect their devices to the Wi-Fi for academic purposes only.  Students should not connect devices for personal reasons such as data fee avoidance.

St. Andrew’s Computer Labs

St. Andrew’s has five computer labs on campus including the library, as well as two mobile labs.  Students will use these labs throughout their academic careers here at St. Andrew’s, and they will be exposed to many different educational applications through the direction of their teachers.

Virtual Desktop Server

St. Andrew’s has migrated away from traditional PCs in favor of a Virtual Desktop Server.  Students can store all their schoolwork on their networked H:\ Drive, which is accessible anytime a Student connects to the server.  This server is fully accessible both on and off campus.  Detailed instructions on how to access the server can be found on your My Saint Dashboard, under Technology & Communication > Technology Tutorials.

Technology Support

If students are experiencing issues with any St. Andrew’s technology they can email the Technology Department at support@standrews-ri.org.  If more immediate assistance is required they should notify a faculty member who can contact us directly.  If Parents are experiencing issues accessing School related technology resources, they can email the Technology Department as well.  The Technology Department is not able to support or repair personal devices.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Students are permitted to bring their own devices to campus to use in their academic endeavors. The use of devices during class is at the discretion of the individual teacher.  With Office 365 students can now download a copy of Microsoft Office and install it on their Mac or PC.

WebPrint Server

St. Andrew’s has a dedicated webprint server that enables students to upload Office documents and PDFs to be printed to on campus printers.  This allows students to use any device and as long as it is online, they can print.
