Welcome to Admissions

Thank you for your interest in Hackley School! We hope the information on these pages will inspire you to visit us and allow us to show you in person what makes Hackley so special. 

Reimagine Accomplishment

You will see that Hackley’s unsurpassed academic excellence stems from our brilliant faculty, whose passion for their subjects knows no bounds – certainly it doesn’t stop at the classroom door. Our students see their teachers at breakfast, lunch and dinner, in the many study areas scattered across the campus, at after-school study sessions and during free periods on the Quad or in the courtyard. 

At Hackley, Upper School students line up and cheer for Lower Schoolers parading in Halloween costumes; student council members attend the girls’ soccer playoffs; football players watch their quarterback play sax in the jazz concert; the senior boarder opens their room to underclassmen looking for a quiet place to study.

Don’t take our word for it. Sign up for a virtual event to learn more about Hackley and meet the people that make our community so special.

We look forward to meeting you.

Sibling and Legacy Applicants

Hackley seeks students of high character who demonstrate intellect, resourcefulness in problem solving, creativity, empathy, and a love of learning.  Hackley families respect those of different backgrounds and perspectives, and value intellectual integrity.
