Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Hockaday School prepares girls of strong potential in the prekindergarten through 12th grades to assume positions of responsibility and leadership in a rapidly changing world by giving them a foundation for living grounded on the traditional four cornerstones: character, courtesy, scholarship, and athletics. To learn more about the four cornerstones, go to the home page and click on Why Hockaday.

"Within the context of an outstanding academic environment, The Hockaday School's goals are to foster a community of concern and friendship, to instill in every girl a love of learning and an understanding of herself and the ethical principles which guide her life, and to develop an appreciation of excellence in all its forms with a commitment to what is right and good."

A Typical Day

"Hockaday offers a dynamic and balanced academic program in a student-centered learning environment. Learning takes place in and out of the classroom where lively exchanges among students and teachers occur on a daily basis.

"From the primary grades through senior year, the curriculum is rich in depth and variety. There are classes in English, language arts, mathematics, foreign language, history/social studies, the sciences, performing and visual arts, physical education and technology."
