Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Hotchkiss Summer Portals is cancelling all on-campus programming. We are offering on-line, distance learning options for several of our courses. Please visit the Virtual Summer Portals 2020 page for more information.
Find your passion.
Try something new. Make lifelong friends.
Spend each day immersed learning something that excites you — whether it’s environmental science, piano, robotics, debate, engineering, or DNA science. And find new friends who are just as passionate and curious as you are.
Hotchkiss Summer Portals is a residential program that offers middle and high-school age students the opportunity to hone a talent, try something new, and experience life at a New England boarding school. In each two or three-week session, you will learn from dedicated faculty members and experts. You’ll also live in a dorm with kids from other programs and a faculty advisor, take part in fun activities, and hang out with new friends.
The school year may end in the summer, but the learning continues. Our Hotchkiss summer programs offer something that will stir your interests, whether you've got a scientific curiosity, a mathematic mind or an artistic eye.
