Why Hockaday

Working at The Hockaday School means joining a community of extraordinary educators and staff who are committed to the education of girls who will be the leaders of tomorrow. Our salaries and benefits are competitive; class sizes are small; the campus is 88-acres of state-of-the art facilities in which we ignite learning, challenge athletes, develop writers, scientists, artists, dancers, musicians, or actors; and awaken the passion of tomorrow's innovators. Space-permitting, Hockaday’s faculty and staff can take advantage of our on-site Child Development Center for children 6 weeks to 5 years old. This supports Hockaday's teachers and staff who would otherwise have to find alternative childcare. Please check out our current openings below and visit the rest of our website to see what an exceptional place is The Hockaday School.

Employment Applications

Professional Development Support

Hockaday generously supports professional development, which includes:
Conferences and Workshops
Professional conferences and workshops occur throughout the year, including summer, and typically address specific disciplines or grade levels. These conferences and workshops may be online, local, or involve travel.
Study Grants
Study grants fall into three categories: 1) Academic - to help faculty in their efforts to obtain advanced degrees; 2) Curriculum Development; and 3) Professional Growth (i.e., a language immersion experience).
Prentiss Grants
Generous funds are made available through an endowment established by the Prentiss family. This grant, which rotates amongst the three divisions, offers teachers the opportunity to pursue summer travel experiences and education.
Although most professional development work is discipline or grade-level specific, faculty are also encouraged to seek support for broader professional development opportunities which address school-wide priorities, such as
  • Building a welcoming, inclusive school community for our diverse population
  • Supporting curriculum and teaching strategies that are well designed, innovative, and forward-focused
  • Continuing to integrate technology as a tool in education
During an average year, Hockaday faculty are awarded nearly 50 study grants and attend approximately 120 conferences and workshops. Hockaday believes in learning as a life-long pursuit.
