Academic Philosophy

Embracing the Opportunities

Hockaday was founded on a transformative academic program, and our girls’ achievements are inspiring. From robust classroom experiences to team competitions to ensemble productions, Hockaday girls are celebrated for their individual and collaborative talents. From her first day of school until she crosses Commencement Terrace eagerly anticipating her future, a Hockaday girl embraces the stimulating learning opportunities that await her each day, both inside and outside of the classroom. She will be empowered to meet challenges and think of solutions. She will be prepared to enter the world with confidence and resolve as a result of her extraordinary Hockaday experience. 

Academic Spaces

Hockaday’s academic facilities are second to none. The Ashley H. Priddy Lower School features well-equipped classrooms and gathering spaces. The Liza Lee Academic Research Center contains divisional libraries, archives, audiovisual production rooms, the school bookstore, and student publication offices. The Margaret Doggett Crow Science Building pushes students to explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. 

Take The Next Step

Just as we encourage our girls to be curious and engage in the process of discovery, we encourage and invite you to visit our campus and experience a day at Hockaday.
Within the private school community, The Hockaday School is an independent college-preparatory day school for girls from grades PK–12 located in Dallas, Texas. Students realize their limitless potential through challenging academic curricula, arts, athletics, and extracurricular programs so that they are inspired to lead lives of purpose and impact.
