Academics

Technology

At Chatham Hall, we recognize that technology is an integral part of life, covering entertainment, socializing and communications, as well as access to information for academics and general trivia.

Our goal as an institution is to prepare you to be a generous and responsible citizen of the digital age. You might use your laptop to collaborate on a project, or an iPad to create an e-book. Today, there is no single tool that covers the entirety of the technological spectrum. As technology changes in the outside world, so too will our usage, our expectations, and our creativity.

You will fully understand the implications of living in a world where information, both good and bad, can travel the world and be presented as truth in a nanosecond. You'll be thoughtful about your use of social media. As adults and mentors, we recognize the positive aspects of these platforms, and support their informed use. You'll learn how to differentiate between good and bad information, and resist the impulse to take the easy way out regarding research.

We envision our students, faculty, and staff representing the best of the age of the new digital citizen.



Minimum Requirements

All students are required to bring an iPad that can run the latest iOS (5th Generation (2017) or later) with a minimum of 128GB of storage. We highly recommend AppleCare Plus or some other insurance coverage on the iPad. We also recommend a laptop for accessing full versions of word processing and content creation software. Student laptops should run Mac OS 10.14 "Mojave" or Windows 10 or later and must have up-to-date virus protection.
