About Hopkins School

Hopkins School, the 3rd oldest independent school in the country, has a distinguished history that spans more than 360 years. Hopkins is an independent, gender-inclusive, college-preparatory day school for grades 7-12. Located on a 108-acre campus overlooking New Haven, the School takes pride in its distinguished faculty and dedicated staff.

Hopkins students come from families of varied ethnic, socio-economic, and cultural backgrounds who value education. Students who need and love a challenge flourish at Hopkins. Hopkins is a community of civility and learning, a hub of intellectual curiosity where families, students and invested educators work together in our collective pursuit of excellence. Together, the Hopkins community seeks to:

  • Develop in our young people the habits of mind of scholars as the foundation for a lifelong love of learning;
  • Foster the courage to live and think as distinct individuals who embrace their responsibilities in the larger world;
  • Expose every student to the deep satisfaction that derives from service to others;
  • Enlarge the educational experience to include the creative joy and aesthetic sensibility of the artist, and the vitality and competitive spirit of the athlete;
  • Provide, through the School’s advisers, the wisdom and goodwill necessary to guide our young people to confident self-reliance;
  • Nurture the development of character essential to a rich and purposeful life.
