iPad Apps and eTextbooks

Students should install the following apps on their iPads before the start of the school year. The college suggests that you purchase iTunes gift cards if you do not wish to set up an account linked to a credit card. Provided the iTunes account remains in credit, students will be able to download free apps as they are required.

If you are unclear on how to download apps or do not have internet access at home, this can be done at the start of the year at Vermont Secondary College by redeeming the value from your pre-purchased iTunes gift card.

When purchasing eTextbooks we strongly advise that the student's College email address be used; which will be given to students on Orientation Day. 

Please note that this apps list may be updated from time to time and prices may vary. The costs listed are correct as of 17/10/2016

You must download the the apps for your specific year level plus all of the required apps.
