Most students will find academics at Hotchkiss to be challenging
and exciting. A number of services are in place to support student adjustment to increased expectations.
The Study Skills Program
Study skills staff members offer support and specific assistance with time management, study skills, reading and writing. Some 80 percent of students use these services at some point in their Hotchkiss careers.
Additional Support Options
A two-hour period each evening is set aside for study purposes. Most students study in their dorm rooms, but some preps and lower mids avail themselves of more structured options based on the recommendation of their class deans.
Students may arrange meetings with their teachers for help with specific classes.
Advisors may contact department heads for an advisee who would benefit from a peer tutor in a specific discipline.
The Study Skills Director is responsible for seeing that the needs of students with learning disabilities are addressed. For further details, including requests for accommodations, go to http://www.hotchkiss.org/academics/academic-support-services/learning-disabilities/index.aspx.
