About Us

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Hackley School’s mission and mottos shape the school’s culture and inspire us to foster an intentionally diverse, equitable, and inclusive community. We respect one another and believe that friendship teaches us to find beauty and strength in our differences as well as our commonalities. A Hackley education embraces both the open exchange of ideas and learning from varying perspectives, inclusive of the beliefs and identities reflected within the community. We strive to embed these principles in our curriculum and programming, our admissions, financial assistance, and hiring practices, and in the way we develop relationships and cultivate character. United, we work together to help ensure students, families, alumni, and employees each feel they belong here, unequivocally. And we recognize that this work, rooted in our distinctive culture and mission, is challenging, ongoing, and essential to who we are and what we aspire to be.
Hackley’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement of Purpose was drafted and revised with input from faculty, staff, students, parents and alumni representing the Hackley community, and was endorsed by the Board of Trustees in December 2019.

I am grateful to those who participated--both students and adults--for the direct nature of these conversations, leading me to insights on ways we can and must do better.
