Hockaday’s future is now. The excellence defined by Miss Hockaday in 1913 must now be amplified to meet the needs of our students in the coming decades. Over the past 100 years, The Hockaday School has successfully educated thousands of young women, giving them the skills they need to transform our world. New ways of teaching, problem solving, and adaptability provide the path to success for tomorrow’s leaders.

Hockaday girls should explore how the world works in classrooms that are dynamic, imaginative, and collaborative. Those classrooms come to life with talented teachers at the helm. A holistic learning environment that values each girl is a central component of our educational mission. Inspirational and compassionate teachers will continue to innovate and transform the Hockaday classroom experience.

Our faculty endowment will allow us to recruit, support, and retain the best in the industry to educate students with limitless potential.
Financial Aid and Sustainability
The future of successful civilizations demands that women’s voices be heard and their talents recognized. Hockaday offers girls of potential a chance at an exceptional education. Student financial assistance ensures that every capable and determined girl can take her place in this visionary institution. Investing in Hockaday’s financial sustainability means that a Hockaday education can continue to change young lives forever and ensures that the Hockaday experience is open and accessible to families for generations to come.
Blending disciplines isn’t as easy as it sounds. To change the face of education, we need facilities designed to promote creativity and collaboration. We need facilities that promote design-thinking and problem-solving. The Centennial Center merges the sciences and the arts, providing real-world laboratories of learning, studios of exploration, and centers for problem-solving. The Centennial Center is a place where students will grow into leaders as they imagine future possibilities.
Miss Hockaday knew, from the beginning, that living at Hockaday would provide an invaluable experience for girls. The School’s commitment to the residence program remains as strong today as it was when Miss Hockaday started the ‘Home Department’ in 1914. The entire Hockaday community benefits from the diversity of cultures, languages, experiences, and educational values the boarders bring to campus. The residence renovation remodels the facilities and establishes Hockaday’s faculty-in-residence program by creating four faculty apartments. By bringing the learning environment into the living environment, Hockaday’s Faculty-in-Residence program will foster deeper faculty-student relationships and enrich the lives of all students.
