How does the East Catholic App Store work?

East Catholic uses JAMF management software for device control. Apple endorses this program and provides the ability to control specific options on individual devices. Only school-approved apps can be downloaded to the iPads. The apps are educational and selected for their alignment with East Catholic’s academic program. The school-approved apps are available to the students via our curated Self-Service store.
