Hotchkiss Needs Your Input!

Hotchkiss has begun a strategic design process to establish the most important priorities and opportunities for the coming decade and beyond.

Following the good work of the Mission Task Force last year, in May the Board of Trustees adopted a new statement of our mission and values. This includes a reinterpretation of our Latin motto, Moniti Meliora Sequamur - "Guided by each other, let us seek better paths."

The development of the mission and values statements was achieved through a thoughtful, collaborative process, and we seek to sustain that spirit as we move through the strategic design process this year.

An essential step in the strategic design process is data gathering. To that end, the School has engaged Stamats, an educational market research firm, to conduct a survey of our community—alumni, current parents, students, trustees, and faculty and staff.

Alumni, students, trustees, and faculty and staff should have already received their surveys. Current parents will receive theirs tomorrow, Nov. 14. Check for an email from Nadine Brock ( at Stamats with the subject line "Survey: The Hotchkiss School Needs Your Input" to complete your survey.

All responses are confidential. The answers you provide will be vitally important to the School as we plan for the future. Thank you for taking the time to participate.
