5 Things You'll Love About Hopkins School - New Canaan & Darien Moms

Here at the nation’s third oldest independent school, high-achieving, motivated students come to Hopkins to be inspired, challenged, and share in a love of learning. If your child is passionate about learning, here are five things you’ll love about a Hopkins education:

1. It’s cool to be smart here.

Our school magnetically pulls students who are eager to excel. A recent Hopkins graduate put it this way: “In normal schools there is always a standout kid or two in every class, but at Hopkins the school is full of those kids.” Being around other students who are similarly motivated — it’s stimulating, it’s inspiring, it’s life changing.

2. Hopkins teachers are deeply invested in their students’ success.

The Hopkins program can be demanding, but the culture of the school is also caring and supportive. Hopkins School hires passionate teachers who know their subjects well, and who bring a passion for teaching and mentoring young people.

3. Ours is a genuine, welcoming community.

Hopkins is a close, supportive community where students feel an immediate sense of belonging. “The community at Hopkins is beautiful,” says one student. “Having people around you who are like, ‘I’m there for you; you can do this’ — it’s just a great environment. It feels like one big family.”

4. Hopkins is a whole pursuit of excellence.

At Hopkins, we all share an academic interest, but we share other passions as well. Arts, athletics, clubs, community service and many other extracurricular activities make for a well-rounded education that empowers students to become their whole, best selves.

5. From here, you can go anywhere.

Hopkins graduates are regularly accepted to the nation’s most prestigious colleges and universities. Our students’ average SAT score: 1470. Average ACT score: 32. Nearly one third of our most recent graduating class received National Merit recognition. This is an exceptional education that will help you to achieve your very best.

Come join with other motivated Hopkins students in a love of learning and a common pursuit of excellence. To learn more, please contact Pamela McKenna, Director of Enrollment, at 203.397.1001 x 213 or [email protected].
