On-Campus Tours and Information Sessions

Important Update: 1/3/22

Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, The Hotchkiss School has decided to delay the start of our school semester. In an effort to limit infection at Hotchkiss and to keep our community members safe, we are suspending all campus visits between now and February 2, 2022.

We plan to open the campus to visitors who would like an outdoor, self-guided tour between February 2 and February 28, 2022. If you are interested in a self-guided tour, please fill out this form and we will be in touch about specific details as it gets closer.

We recognize that for many of you, this may mean that you will be unable to visit us in-person.  We hope you will find our virtual tour and the recordings of our virtual events helpful as you continue the admission process. Additionally, we encourage you to join our upcoming virtual events: Bearcat Chats with our current Hotchkiss students and/or Coffee with a Counselor, a chance to ask questions, hosted by one of our admission counselors.

Fall Interview Information
