There's no shortage of exciting events to join on a typical day at Hotchkiss. Between rigorous classes, athletic practices, co-curricular events — and, of course, social time with friends — each day will be filled to the brim. Come along with us on a typical day, and you'll soon discover what sets us apart.
Each weekday kicks off with a breakfast in our dining hall. From there, students go on to attend classes starting at 8:30 a.m. on Monday through Saturday. Our schedule includes shorter days on Wednesday and Saturday, giving students ample time to pursue other activities and sports. Throughout a typical school day, you'll attend school meetings, advisory sessions, or school-wide chapel service.
After a healthy lunch break and the completion of your afternoon classes, it's time for co-curriculars! These play an essential role in our community life. Students will have plenty of opportunities to sharpen their skills and develop new ones together. After dinner, weekday evenings usually involve student-led club meetings and activities.
Finally, each weekday culminates in a mandatory two-hour study hall, where students can work on projects, write papers, study for upcoming tests, and form study groups together before the day ends with lights-out.
