Visiting Campus

Hopkins School is located at 986 Forest Road in the Westville section of New Haven, Connecticut. The Admission Office is located in Hopkins House near the Knollwood parking lot.

Hopkins encourages visits from prospective students and their families, as well as current families and other friends.

We host an annual Open House, which will be Sunday, October 22, 2017. Online registration is available here. Registration for students interested in grades 9-12 begins at 12:00 pm and registration for students interested in grades 7 and 8 begins at 2:00 pm.

If you are unable to attend Open House, we also host student-led Tour Days on specific Wednesday mornings. Tour Days for this year are November 8 (register here), November 29 (register here), and December 13 (register here). Space for Tour Days is limited, so an RSVP is required. All Tour Days will begin at Hopkins House where there will be a short welcome at 8:45 am, followed by a student-led tour. 

Finally, if you are not able to visit on any of those days, some interview times can be combined with a campus tour. We will contact you to arrange an interview after your application has been submitted, and at that time, you can request to schedule an interview combined with a tour.

Prospective students and families should not feel obligated to attend more than one of these events.
