 During Onboarding, your child will:

  • Go through iPad setup with Filewave, which involves erasing all data on the device and installing a profile that allows Cathedral to manage the iPad. 
  • Receive accounts that gives them access to many of the resources they will need during the school year. The accounts your child will be set up with during Onboarding include:
Network Account: Google Account:

The Cathedral network account gives students access to:     

Your student's Google account gives them access to:

  • Cathedral email

Their Google account needs to be set-up prior to Onboarding. Detailed instructions for set-up will be emailed to you in the month of May.

How to prepare for Onboarding: 

In order to prepare for the Onboarding process, please make sure your child has their own iTunes account set up and they know the username and password for this account. You will also want to make sure that any data from the apps they may have installed on their iPad has been backed up. For step-by-step instructions on how to backup app data, click here. Ensuring they have a good backup of their data will allow them to restore this data after their iPad has been wiped. 

*Please make sure your child brings their iPad fully charged to Onboarding.*
