Applying for financial aid is perhaps best understood as a two part effort:
Financial Aid Mission Statement
Hackley’s financial aid program assures that the inability of families to pay full tuition is not a barrier to creating a stimulating student peer environment in terms of skills, talents, gender, ethnicity, national origin, religion, socioeconomics, sexual orientation and family structures. Such a peer environment, reflective of the world in which we live and work, is essential to effective education and stimulates achievement through high standards in the academic, artistic, athletic, and moral dimensions of education. In its broadest terms, financial aid enacts Hackley’s commitment to educational achievement and the democratic ethic.
Hackley safeguards the confidentiality of all financial information supplied by applicants and does not publicly identify recipients of financial aid, except with parental permission in the case of distinguished, named awards granted in conjunction with the Office of Alumni & Development. Only those persons directly involved in the financial aid process or in its administration will review this information.
