The Hotchkiss School Reviews

I was from a modest background when I was accepted then attended Hotchkiss. I immediately fit it and felt no judgment from other students or faculty.

My horizons were broadened, my education was amazing, I found I could strive for goals I never thought possible from my background.

I applied and was accepted to MIT and Standford. I was very well prepared relative to my peers.

Many of my best friends and memories are from my days at Hotchkiss, even now, several years out of university.

I could not have imagined myself at one of the larger boarding schools in the Northeast. Hotchkiss was a good size, where I knew almost everyone and they knew me. I was able to participate in any activity, such as theater, whereas other schools, it would have been a battle to get a bit part.

I'm grateful every day for the opportunity that Hotchkiss presented me.

The Hotchkiss School is a wonderful boarding school located in the northwest corner of Connecticut. The school sits on a hill that overlooks Lake Wononskopomuc. The campus is gorgeous, and there are multiple exceptional dormitories. Last year, Hotchkiss opened Redlich dormitory, which is now a hub for the students on campus. The teachers are amazing, and often offer office times on weekends, which is a time where they would much rather spend with their families. Because of this, it is very easy for students to excel in their studies.
The Hotchkiss School is an amazing boarding school located in Lakeville, CT. As a recent graduate, I can say that Hotchkiss has inspired, challenged, and molded me in so many ways. The students are bright and come for immensely diverse backgrounds, not just geographically, but educationally, politically, religiously, etc. I have experienced numerous ups and downs at Hotchkiss, and I am so grateful that I got to spend 4 years there.
