  • Alumni Day 2023

    It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces on Alumni Day 2023 - Saturday, Oct. 21. We welcomed over 350 alumni and their families back to the campus. Alumni reconnected with classmates, friends, teachers and coaches, attended master classes taught by Hackley faculty, walked down memory lane, cheered on our athletes at sporting events, and celebrated special milestone reunions. A highlight of the day was the induction of Anne Siviglia as an honorary alumna by the Hackley Alumni Association, the HAA’s highest honor. For many alumni, returning to the Hilltop is coming home. Once a Hornet, always a Hornet!
    We hope to see you next year on Alumni Day 2024.
