One of the best features of Chatham is that they do not pressure students to take the SAT/ACT, allowing for a broader observation of creativity, intelligence, and multiple intelligence. It allows students of all socio-economic backgrounds to come in and experience a nice campus. This can be a good thing, and it could be a bad thing.

Chatham allows for an observation of many skills and not just testing skills.
