This summer, Experience Learning at The Hotchkiss School. Immerse yourself in exploring your passions: sequence DNA, deliver a speech, build a robot, perform on stage, conduct experiments, or canoe to an overnight campsite. Your days will be packed full: in addition to classes, you will be eating in the dining hall, playing soccer on the turf, swimming in the lake, and sleeping in the dorms. The friends you make will last a lifetime. At Hotchkiss Summer Portals, you will work alongside exceptional faculty, experts in their fields, who are committed to experiential education. You will meet motivated students from all over the world who share your curiosity and who are inspired to learn by doing. Come join an extraordinary summer community, where you will Experience Learning in a whole new way.
