In 2014-15, we inaugurate our second century of educating girls to be resilient, confident women. It is my privilege to welcome you to the Hockaday community. You will find Hockaday a warm and welcoming community for almost 1,100 girls from across the Metroplex and around the world.
In August 2014, we open Phase I of the Hockaday Centennial Center– a state-of-the-art Science Center that will provide multi-purpose, multi-disciplinary spaces for the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. We look forward to the many ways these new facilities will enhance the learning of our students, including the most recent addition to our program – a 4th grade “Invent to Learn” Arts and Engineering course that will be part of each girl’s experience in Lower School.
2014-15 promises to be an exciting year for our community as we plan for our future. Through our self-study process, a part of our ten-year reaccreditation cycle through the Independent Schools Association of the Southwest (ISAS), we will take an intensive look at our School today and our establish our goals for tomorrow. In addition, in 2014-15 our Board of Trustees will lead a strategic planning process that will set a "big picture” roadmap for the future of Hockaday. We look forward to the participation of our entire community as we imagine and create our next 100 years.
During this historic moment, we are privileged to continue the legacy of Ela Hockaday – building, sustaining, and growing a school that believes in the limitless potential of girls.
