Students are provided Apple MacBook Airs with professional software. These laptops have a value of $800-$1000. Students/families are responsible for these laptops. We strongly encourage all families to purchase laptop insurance each year.

Students that damage their laptops will be billed and expected to pay the full cost of the repair. Daily loaner laptops will be issued until students/families provided 25% of the repair cost. Typical repair cost is usually $300-$800 depending on type of damage. Once the original laptop is repaired and the initial repair cost of 25% has been paid, the laptop will be re-issued to the student. The remainder of the laptop repair bill is expected to be paid within that current school year. Payment plans for repair are available. Full repair payment is always accepted.

You can purchase Laptop Insurance from one of the following vendors:


Why? In the last year we had 2 laptops stolen, and about 15% of them damaged with significant cost to each student. Much of this is carelessness. We constantly remind students to PROTECT THE TECH. Unfortunately, some don’t. We strongly encourage each Minarets family to get Laptop Insurance. Details below.


  1. The value of the laptops. 11” MacBook Airs $800, 13”MacBook Airs $1000
  2. How to get the SERIAL NUMBER for your laptop.

Choose Apple Menu, About this Mac, the Serial Number will appear in this window.

This will cover Accidental Damage, Liquid Damage, Theft, Fire, Vandalism, Natural Disasters. Also, most home owners and car insurance don’t cover laptops or the deductible is more than the cost of the laptop. You certainly can check with your own insurance provider.

Students with accidental damage, careless damage, theft of a laptop will be provided with an OLDER MacBook until balance is paid in full for their MacBook Air. Screen damage is usually $300-$500, dents and damage to casing range from $300-$450. Full laptop replacement is $950-$1250 depending on model.
