Hopkins School is a private, college-preparatory, coeducational, day school located in New Haven, Connecticut.

Founded in 1660, Hopkins School is the third-oldest independent secondary school in the United States, younger than the Collegiate School and Roxbury Latin School. Hopkins was founded "for the breeding up of hopeful youths" with funds from Edward Hopkins' estate to fulfill John Davenport's wishes to bring a grammar school to New Haven. First established on the town's green, the school moved to its current campus on a hill overlooking New Haven in 1926. Hopkins has been coeducational since merging with Day Prospect Hill School in 1972.

Hopkins is divided into three separate schools. The Junior school consists of the 7th and 8th grades. The high school is divided into the Middle (9th and 10th grade) and Upper (11th and 12th grade) schools. Most new students enter Hopkins in either the 7th or 9th grade. Tuition is set at $39,200 for the 2015–16 school year. Hopkins allocates more than $3 million in need based financial assistance to 19.4% of students.

In April 2010, Forbes Magazine named Hopkins the nineteenth best college preparatory school in the United States of America, and, as it was the only school from Connecticut on the list, the best college preparatory school in Connecticut. On January 8, 2014, Head of School Barbara Masters Riley announced her plans to retire at the end of the 2015-2016 academic year.
