Update for 2021-2022 Academic Year

We are pleased to announce that the Residence Hall, which has been temporarily closed through Fall 2021 due to COVID-related safety concerns, will reopen in January 2022 through May 2025. During the fall, current Boarding students will be supported to learn at Hockaday as Day students or in distance learning, if desired. For more information, please see our July 7 message to families and Frequently Asked Questions about Boarding.

Student Life in Boarding

The Residence Life staff will be focused on creating a warm and caring community experience for our Boarding students. This includes developing plans for move-in and orientation, which will be important to support students who have been away from residential living since March 2020 or who are coming to Hockaday for the first time. The Residence Life team and this year’s House Council also create a robust co-curricular program for our Boarding students with lots of fun social activities. This will begin in the fall and will expand when students are back in the Residence Hall in January 2022.

Phase-Out of Boarding Program

On April 14, 2021, The Hockaday Board of Trustees voted to phase out the School’s Boarding Program in 2025, following the graduation of all currently enrolled Boarding students.
