Technology Requirements at Sterling Academy

There are certain pieces of hardware and operating systems which work best with our curriculum. Review them below. 

At Sterling Academy we use an online learning management system called Maestro, which connects our teachers and students with all the digital tools we use. Within Maestro we use online curriculum from Edgenuity. These programs enable us to provide the outstanding range of interactive, multi-media course presentations that make our online high school more engaging and interesting. Below is listed the technology requirements for both systems.

Technology RequirementsAs of September 2023, Maestro supports:

  • Chrome 88+
  • Firefox 91+
  • Edge 88+
  • Safari 13.1+ (Macintosh only)

In addition, Maestro has been known to work on Opera 75+ and Brave 1.17.73+, but technical support is not offered for these browsers.

Minimum requirements for Edgenuity are:
  • Windows 10, 11*
  • MacOS 12 & macOS 13*
  • Chrome OS 57+
  • Android 5.0+ (Note: While the Android OS is supported, the Android browser is not; Chrome should be used)**
  • Apple iOS 10.3+**
  • Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge browsers -- only the latest supported versions

You will need an internet connection with a download speed of at least 2 Mbps. Anything slower will cause videos to stutter and other aspects to work improperly. Edgenuity says students need to have a sound card, speakers, microphone (or headset with microphone).

*While these are the only versions Edgenuity will officially offer technical support for, Edgenuity will generally work on older Windows and Mac systems, and unless a bug is specific to older operating systems, Edgenuity will generally assist with technical issues in older systems.

**While much of Edgenuity content works on smartphones, Edgenuity does not offer support for smartphones.  They do offer support for iPads and other tablets.

There are some courses, particularly related to coding or digital arts, that are not compatible on iPads or Chromebooks.

Mobile data bandwidth: Average of 110 MB per lesson, average of 40-50 lessons per course.
