Hockaday Residence Life Program
The Hockaday Residence Life Program is centered on the development of adolescent young women and preparing them for rewarding lives outside the classroom. We encourage each girl to live out the ideals of the Cornerstones of Hockaday through our House Goals: Find Joy and Friendship, Act Responsibly, Gain Understanding, and Lead with Purpose.
As a Boarding Program, the development of a cohesive community is vital. Self-discipline, consideration, courtesy towards others, and high standards for behavior and community involvement are all key components of our program. Balancing academics and extracurricular activities, while learning to live independently, can be challenging and also a great goal when accomplished. As residents progress through the year, they build friendships, find strength in both trials and triumphs, and grow in ways they never thought possible.
Though our boarding students are spread throughout the world this year due to the pandemic, the boarding program continues to have active programming and supports in place. A Boarding Advisory is held virtually for all distance learning boarding students, and House Council leads bi-weekly virtual get-togethers for all boarding students wishing to participate. Mini-boarding-families have also been formed with House Council members, so all boarding students have a close circle of friends and mentors no matter where they are in the world.
