At The Hotchkiss School, athletics are an important part of our identity and school spirit. We are proud of our Bearcats and their award-winning athletic skills. More than anything, we are proud to be a Connecticut private high school with an athletic community that focuses on perseverance, team spirit, and personal integrity.
Our expansive athletics programs run year-round, with options for students to participate and grow alongside their teammates. With 94% of students participating in a team sport, athletics are truly part of The Hotchkiss School experience. You'll find students cheering each other on during matches, competing in off-season intramural teams, and challenging themselves beyond what they thought possible.
