Educational opportunities at Hotchkiss extend well beyond our campus. Each year, nearly a quarter of Hotchkiss students take advantage of a range of travel programs:
- Hotchkiss faculty run eight to ten "Hotchkiss in the World" programs that help students hone skills and learn in ways that are not possible here in Lakeville. At the same time, these sojourns abroad – whether in the U.S. or to other countries – are rooted in Hotchkiss’s academic and co-curricular program
- Our membership in Round Square allows students to participate in annual student conferences and go on exchange to 160 Round Square schools in 39 countries like Australia, Colombia, Germany, Peru, and South Africa
- Students can spend a semester or a year at the School Year Abroad campuses in France, Italy, and Spain
- Students can also spend a semester in the Bahamas at the Island School, the Colorado Rockies at HMI, or on the Maine Coast with Chewonki
2023-24 Travel Program Catalog

We don't just offer travel opportunities, we make them accessible to our students.
Hotchkiss offers more than $120,000 in travel grants each year, available through 14 different Funds for Global Understanding. The generosity of alumni and parents means that as many as 40 students a year can partake in community-based service work in the developing world, immerse themselves in different cultures, or study languages.
