Creativity Matters: Adobe in Schools

With the Adobe K-12 Site Licences, you can give your students the tools they need to explore their creativity and improve their employability

Creative Cloud1 gives your school access to the world’s best creative apps and services as soon as they are released. Step up from Adobe Creative Suite 6 to access a wealth of new features.
Promising to offer everything your staff and students need to create great work, this latest update brings breakthrough innovation to many popular desktop and mobile apps, as well as enhancements to the Adobe Stock2 offering and the Libraries panel, enabling you to create, store, manage and reuse your Creative Cloud assets easier than ever before.

Just for Schools

Now, you can bring Adobe Creative Cloud to your school with affordable and easy-to-manage site licensing options available through the Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP). You’ll enhance teaching and learning while helping students develop essential digital skills for future studies and career success.

What’s New?

District Offering
In addition to the existing K-12 School Site Licence offer, Adobe now has a Creative Cloud for Education K-12 District Licence offer – bringing additional savings and benefits to Academy Trusts when ordering a minimum of 5003 licences.

Adobe Creative Cloud Mobile Apps on Chromebooks
January 2017 saw Adobe announce the launch of its leading Creative Cloud mobile apps on select Chromebooks. Chromebooks compatible with Android apps will be able to download Adobe Photoshop Mix, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for mobile, Adobe Illustrator Draw, Adobe Photoshop Sketch, Adobe Comp CC and Adobe CC mobile for free. This is the first step in a long-term plan for Chromebooks in partnership with Google.

What are the benefits of a site licence?

  • Universal access – give your students, teachers and staff access to the latest industry-leading creative software so they can design, share and publish compelling communications across all media and devices
  • Budget predictability – a low-cost, flat-fee, single-licence purchase with one annual or multiyear contract for at least 100 school-owned or leased computers, with the ability to cover more at the time of purchase
  • Flexible deployment and management – designed for an individual school, a site license offers a web-based Admin Console that makes it easy to centrally manage and deploy licences
  • Classroom and home use – your school has the flexibility to use licences for in-classroom deployment or at home on teacher-owned machines
  • Free instructional resources – your educators can access the Adobe Education Exchange for free professional development, teaching resources and peer-to-peer collaboration to help them get up to speed on Creative Cloud apps and ignite creativity in the classroom
  • Now featuring BYOD – students can access Creative Cloud on their personal devices
