Paul VI Catholic School Provides Fujitsu LIFEBOOK Laptops

"Laptops, when combined with teaching & learning software and interactive e-texts, are enabling our students to become more effectively involved in applying"

Steve Latter, Laptop Program Director, Paul VI Catholic High School

The customer

Paul VI Catholic High School, established in 1983, is one of four secondary schools in the Arlington Diocesan school system of Virginia. From an original enrolment of 350 students, it has grown to a current capacity of 1,000 young men and women who seek the well-rounded educational experience that it offers.

The challenge

Paul VI Catholic School wanted to develop a laptop program that would equip its students and teachers with the right tools to increase classroom learning, prepare their students for college, and to develop the 21st Century skillsets required by today’s employers.

The solution

Following a comprehensive selection process, the school chose to provide 1,000 students, and 75 teachers with the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK T732/4 laptop. The school also chose DyKnow’s teaching & learning software as part of the overall strategy.

The benefit

  • Teachers now use the devices, combined with DyKnow software, to provide an engaging, immersive learning experience
  • The Fujitsu LIFEBOOK T732 Laptop, and now the most recent T734 model, is giving students the flexibility to have all their computing needs covered for 4 years in one device
  • By supplying almost half of set textbooks in e-book format, students’ families are now saving approximately 50 percent on costs
  • The school’s transformation to a more student-centered educational program puts Paul VI at the forefront of the private school educational sector and positions it well in the highly competitive Fairfax County Public School system
