Financial Aid Information Night

The Hockaday School is committed to providing an exceptional education to talented, motivated girls regardless of their family’s financial circumstances. As the cost of independent schools continues to rise, Hockaday recognizes the challenge of affording a private school. While the primary responsibility for funding the cost of education resides with the family, we understand the need for financial assistance for many families. All financial aid at Hockaday is awarded in the form of a tuition grant. Detailed information regarding the financial aid process and our School’s philosophy of awarding aid will be provided during the presentation.  Do you have questions about Hockaday's Financial Aid process and philosophy? Our informational night is open to all interested parents.
