About Us

We Are Hackley

Our Students

Our students create this community together, learning and growing through relationship with others consistent with our motto, “United, we help one another.” While our students differ widely in their interests, passions, backgrounds and perspectives, they share a commitment to mutual respect and welcome, unreserved effort, and investing themselves in what they do with energy and joy.

Our Faculty & Staff

Hackley employees support and drive the School’s culture of respect and welcome, modeling through their work the values framed by our motto, “United, we help one another.” Leading by example, they encourage students to rise to the challenge posed by our mission: to grow in character, scholarship, and accomplishment, to offer unreserved effort, and to learn from the varying perspectives and backgrounds in our community and the world." Visit "Our Faculty & Staff" news page.

Our Parents

We often call Hackley parents the glue that holds the Hackley community together through the Hackley Parents’ Association (HPA)’s many efforts on campus. Through the HPA’s broad array of programming, we, as a community, get to know one another better, uniting to help one another in so many different ways. Visit "Our Parents" information page.

Our Alumni

Hackley alumni share a deep devotion to the “Hilltop” where they were invited, every day, to “Enter here to be and find a friend.” Even as the School evolved over decades from a seven-day boys’ boarding school to a coeducational K-12 school with a five-day boarding program, and as the campus itself has evolved and grown, alumni take pride in belonging to this place, which values character, commitment and friendship — qualities prized not in lieu of accomplishment but recognized as more important.
