Helpful Tips

List of 4 items.

  • When you begin the Online Application...

    When you click the application link (above), you'll be taken to a login screen where you will enter your username and password.

    Once you've entered your username and password, you'll be able to begin filling out an application for your son or daughter.

    If you have any issues logging in please contact Kimberly Cummings at
  • You don’t need to complete the online application all in one sitting!

    Once you’ve created your account, bookmark the login screen. As you fill out the application, you’ll see that you can periodically save your work. If you need to stop and come back to it, even a few days later, that’s just fine. Simply log in again and pick up where you left off.
  • You’ll be able to pay the application fee online as well.

    In your parent portal, you will see an action item labeled "Application Fee." Please be sure to read the instructions carefully before proceeding. When you are ready, click the button labeled "Continue with payment." You’ll come to a secure, encrypted page where you can make a credit-card payment for the fee. Or, if you applied for and were given a fee waiver code, enter the code into the area labeled "Discount Code" and click the button labeled "Validate."  If you will be applying for financial aid and would like a fee waiver, please follow the instructions to the right under the heading "Application Fee Waivers."
  • Be on the lookout for an email in early November about submitting your online recommendations!

    If you submitted the Family Information Form and the application fee prior to November 1st, you will receive an email from us with information regarding submitting the online recommendations required for your child's application. Please note that these recommendations will be accessed through your existing application account. Please be sure to read the instructions thoroughly before proceeding with the recommendation(s).  When the recommendations become available in November, you will enter the name and email address of the teacher(s) receiving the recommendation(s).

    If you have questions about the recommendations required before November, please feel free to contact the Admissions Office (; 914-366-2642).

Application Fee Waivers

If you would like to request a need-based waiver for our application fee, please contact Kimberly Cummings ( in our office for instructions on how to apply. Hackley does not offer a fee waiver for the evaluation fee required for Kindergarten and 1st grade applicants. The deadline to apply for the application fee waiver is Tuesday, November 30th at 3:30 PM.

PLEASE NOTE:  If you do not qualify for a fee waiver, this should not be taken as an indication of your eligibility to qualify for a financial aid award, as the two application processes are entirely separate.
