Visiting 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 2019 for the 2020-21 school year).

In order to schedule your visit, 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.

Dress Code Guidelines

List of 2 items.

  • What should I wear when I come for my class visit to Hackley?

    Boys should wear a collared shirt (long- or short-sleeved), tucked in, with full-length chino or dress pants (no denim, please). Ties and jackets are not necessary.
     
    Girls may wear dresses, skirts or pants (no denim, please) with sweaters, shirts (long- or short-sleeved) or other appropriate tops (no t-shirts or sweatshirts, please). Necklines and skirt length should be modest, as should the fit of clothing; spaghetti straps and tank tops are not permitted. Ballet flats, boots with low heels and other non- or low-heeled shoes are permitted.
  • What should I do about physical education classes during my visit?

    Students visiting Grades 7-12 will not attend PE classes; therefore, a change of clothes or sneakers will not be necessary.
     
    Students visiting Grades 5 or 6 may attend a PE class as part of their day’s schedule, and visitors are welcome to participate in the class. If a visitor wishes to participate, she or he should bring a change of clothing and sneakers. Please be aware participation is not required; visiting students may simply observe if they prefer.
     
    Students visiting the Lower School are permitted to wear or bring sneakers in order to take part in PE classes; a change of clothing is not necessary in this case.
