The Hotchkiss School is an independent boarding school located in Lakeville, Connecticut.
Founded in 1891, the school provides an education of unsurpassed quality to 600 students in grades 9 through 12, and to a small number of postgraduates.
The Hotchkiss School strives to develop in students a lifelong love of learning, responsible citizenship, and personal integrity.
We are a community based on trust, mutual respect, and compassion, and we hold all members of the community accountable for upholding these values. The school is committed to mastery of learning skills, development of intellectual curiosity, excellence, and creativity in all disciplines, and enthusiastic participation in athletics and other school activities.
We encourage our students to develop clarity of thought, confidence and facility in expressing ideas, and artistic and aesthetic sensitivity.
We expect all members of the community, in and out of the classroom, to subject their views and actions to critical examination and to accept responsibility for them.
We hope that our graduates will leave Hotchkiss with a commitment to service to others and to environmental stewardship, and with a greater understanding of themselves and of their responsibilities in a global society.
