Admissions

Getting to Know Hackley

A century ago, our founders carved the message “Enter here to be and find a friend” above our main entrance, and it’s an invitation our Admission Office extends warmly throughout the school year. Hackley is a welcoming place, where students and faculty go out of their way to turn visitors into friends.

We provide tours and information sessions from April to November of each year and accept applications beginning one year prior to the start of the coming school year (eg., September 2021 for the 2022-23 school year).

In order to sign up for one of our virtual events, begin by setting up your Admissions Portal. Your Admissions Portal will allow you to schedule a tour and information session, submit an application and schedule an interview.
