Moments in Hotchkiss History


Welcome From

Craig W. Bradley, Head of School

Welcome to the Hotchkiss website, a virtual place intended to convey something of the values, culture, and information about this extraordinary school. School communities are continually evolving; they experience a cycle of renewal each year with graduation in May followed by the arrival of new students and faculty each fall. This website reflects that constant renewal and evolution, and I hope you will return regularly to keep in touch with what’s happening at Hotchkiss.
