Hopkins School

986 Forest Road
New Haven, CT 06515-0651
Tel: (203)397-1001
Grades: 7-12 | 710 students
Hopkins is a traditional, independent, coeducational day school of 710 students in grades 7-12.
The School began with a dedication to the "breeding up of hopeful youths for the public service of the country in future times." More than three centuries later, Hopkins School continues to fulfill its original mission, and "hopeful" – connoting both the promise and the expectation of future good – remains the word that defines our educational approach and animates our aspirations.
We define ourselves as a community of civility and learning, one that educates students from diverse backgrounds to a full measure of their talents and humanity.
We seek to develop in our young people the habits of mind of scholars as the foundation for a lifelong love of learning; foster the courage to live and think as distinct individuals who embrace their responsibilities in the larger world; expose every student to the deep satisfaction that derives from service to others; enlarge the educational experience to include the creative joy and aesthetic sensibility of the artist, and the vitality and competitive spirit of the athlete; provide, through the School's advisers, the wisdom and goodwill necessary to guide our young people to confident self-reliance; and nurture the development of character essential to leading a rich and purposeful life.
