A Remarkable Story

In 1891, Maria Bissell Hotchkiss founded a school based on two key principles: academic excellence and financial accessibility. Her vision has stood the test of time: today, Hotchkiss offers more than $12 million in financial aid, and the School remains committed to providing an education of unsurpassed quality. Just as important as those two pillars is the richness of community life at Hotchkiss, anchored by traditions that have grown and changed with the School.
