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.
