Bring Your Own Device

For the 2019/2020 school year, Detroit Country Day School provides computing devices for students in grades PK3-6. For students grades 7-12, students can continue to use their school issued device or bring their own device (BYOD). View the breakdown of program.

Recommended Devices for BYOD

The school requires the device supports 5GHz Wifi, has at least a 7" screen and includes a keyboard (either touch screen or physical). Examples of acceptable devices are Microsoft Windows based laptops, Apple laptops and Chromebooks.

Setup Instructions

If you already have a compatible computing device, setup is very simple.

Most of the applications we use are web based. The list of sites that we use are located on our apps portal page at:

Students can login to this site with their DCDS username and password.

Some applications require a Client to be installed on Windows, MacOS, Android and Apple iOS. Here is the link to the download page for the VMware Horizon Client:
