The College Advising Office empowers students to take the lead in deciding where they’ll go after graduation, providing exceptional support, up-to-date resources, and expertise in the world of college admissions. We guide students as they consider a range of options for life after Hotchkiss, teach them how to put together a college application that reflects their beliefs and talents, and help them choose the path that suits them best.
