PK/K Applicants 
 
Once your daughter’s application is received, Cyndi Lewis will schedule a Developmental Age Assessment on a Saturday between December - January.  There is an optional opportunity for her to visit Hockaday the Thursday before her assessment. This short visit is unstructured but will give your daughter a chance to familiarize herself with the Lower School classrooms.  
 
Grades 1-4 Applicants
 
Once your daughter’s application is received, Cyndi Lewis will confirm your daughter’s Admission testing date. Once you receive this confirmation, you may register your daughter (dates below) for an optional visit to campus the Friday before she tests.  Each student visitor will be matched with a current Hockaday student for the morning and participate in a Lower School class setting.  Please note she will visit the classroom of her current grade.

If you have questions, please call Cyndi Lewis 214.360.6521.

Middle School

A student shadow visit gives your daughter the opportunity to attend the classes in the grade to which she is applying. Typically, your daughter will be on campus from 7:50 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. She will be matched with a current student who will be her hostess for the day. She will attend classes, meet students and teachers, experience advisory, have lunch, and see what a typical day at Hockaday is like. The interview may be conducted during the course of the day and lunch will be provided. 

We understand your daughter’s schedule may not allow for a shadow visit, so please note that although the interview is required for admission, the visit is optional.  If you prefer to only schedule the interview to complete the application requirements, please access the interview only schedule in the Parent Portal. Interviews may be scheduled between 8:30 - 9:30 a.m. and  3:00 - 4:30 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, September 26 - November 1.

Once the application has been submitted, the student shadow visit may be scheduled by clicking on the checklist item in the Parent Portal. Visit dates (listed below) will be filled on a first-come, first served basis. We encourage your daughter to complete her visit as soon as she is able. Students are only permitted to visit the grade to which they are applying.

Boarding

We invite prospective boarding students to spend the night at Hockaday and attend classes the following day. If your daughter only has a few hours in Dallas, she can schedule a student shadow visit. They are both wonderful ways for your daughter to get a true Hockaday experience! The overnight visits listed below coincide with other Admission events. In December, your whole family can attend Admission Preview and your daughter may spend the night in our boarding department. She see why residence life at Hockaday is a life-changing and unique experience. We also have an overnight visit in January and parents can drop off their daughter to spend the night and they are able to attend the Middle/Upper School Parent Visit the following day. Both boarding visits will include the opportunity for your daughter to attend classes, meet students and teachers, and see what a typical day at Hockaday is like. Schedule a visit by clicking on an available date below.

Please contact Molly Averitt, Associate Director of Admission-Boarding Recruitment or 214.360.6522 if you have questions or want to schedule a student shadow visit.
