Lower School

PK/K Applicants 
 
Once your daughter’s application is received, Cyndi Lewis will schedule a Developmental Age Assessment on a Saturday between December - January.  There is an optional opportunity for her to visit Hockaday the Thursday before her assessment. This short visit is unstructured, but will give your daughter a chance to familiarize herself with the Lower School classrooms.  
 
Grades 1-4 Applicants
 
Once your daughter’s application is received, Cyndi Lewis will confirm your daughter’s Admission testing date. Once you receive this confirmation, you may register your daughter (dates below) for an optional visit to campus the Friday before she tests.  Each student visitor will be matched with a current Hockaday student for the morning and participate in a Lower School class setting.  Please note she will visit the classroom of her current grade.

If you have questions, please call Cyndi Lewis 214.360.6521.

She may be picked up at Hoak Portico following her interview at the end of the day.

Boarding

We invite prospective boarding students to spend the night at Hockaday and attend classes the following day. If your daughter only has a few hours in Dallas, she can schedule a student shadow visit. They are both wonderful ways for your daughter to get a true Hockaday experience! The overnight visits listed below coincide with other Admission events. In December, your whole family can attend Admission Preview and your daughter may spend the night in our boarding department. She see why residence life at Hockaday is a life-changing and unique experience. We also have an overnight visit in January and parents can drop off their daughter to spend the night and they are able to attend the Middle/Upper School Parent Visit the following day. Both boarding visits will include the opportunity for your daughter to attend classes, meet students and teachers, and see what a typical day at Hockaday is like. Schedule a visit by clicking on an available date below.

Please contact Molly Averitt at maveritt@hockaday.org or 214.360.6522 if you have questions or want to schedule a student shadow visit.
