|It is often remarked that you can tell a Hockaday girl. Whether it’s confidence, intelligence, grace or integrity, there is something about a Hockaday girl’s character that is distinctive and makes her exceptional. |
Maybe it has something to do with the Four Cornerstones – Character, Courtesy, Scholarship and Athletics – founded by Ela Hockaday almost 100 years ago, the qualities that follow our students throughout their Hockaday experience, in the classroom, on the playing field, in the community and within their relationships. These Cornerstones are our commitment to building the personal integrity of each student while carefully guiding her intellectual and social development.
The Hockaday experience is like no other. In Lower School, you’ll write, produce and perform a musical. In Middle School, you may start your own business. In Upper School, you will lead, learn, and contribute, and you will find your passion. You will be surrounded by girls from all over the world, sharing different cultures and different ideas but with mutual respect.
From Lower School through Upper School, we provide students opportunities to assume positions of responsibility and leadership. No two girls will forge forward on the same path as they leave Hockaday, but it is our great satisfaction to know that with the values, self-esteem, friendships and academic advantages they take with them, each girl will be fully prepared for the next important step of her unique journey. At Hockaday, you’ll not only find your voice, but you will find your heart and passion in life.
|The Hockaday School is an equal opportunity environment. Hockaday does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sexual orientation, creed, religion, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of its admission and education policies, financial aid programs, athletic programs or other administered activities.|
