The Hotchkiss School is a coeducational preparatory school in Lakeville, Connecticut, United States.

In the 2019/20 school year, the school has 600 students, 16% of whom are foreigners. 96% of the students live on the school premises (boarding school), the rest attend the school only during the day.[1]


It was founded in 1891 by Maria Hotchkiss at the instigation of then-President of Yale University, Timothy Dwight V. Since 1974, girls have also been admitted to the original boys' school. The campus covers about 2.2 km² (545 acres), is picturesquely situated between two lakes and is partly forested.



The class of 1924 included Chapman Rose and two Bilderbergers with close connections to the USDS - Paul Nitze and Charles Yost.

Sexual abuse

An independent investigation led by the law firm Locke Lord found evidence that at least seven former faculty members had sexually abused students at the Hotchkiss School between 1969 and 1992. After being discovered, leaders from the prestigious boarding school apologized for botching sexual assault investigations. Prominent in the report are the indiscretions of Leif Thorne-Thomsen, who taught classics at the school from 1964 to 1992. Over a two-decade period Thorne-Thomsen preyed on “vulnerable” girls who considered themselves “outsiders,” even marrying two of them. Several of Thorne-Thomsen’s had already been victimized by other trusted figures prior to their abuse by him.[2]

The sexual misconduct at the Hotchkiss School goes back decades, encompassing everything from inappropriate contact and unnecessary gynecological exams to rape. At least 16 students were subjected to abuse at the elite private school within a 23-year period.[2]
