For College Representatives

Each year, Hackley welcomes over 120 college admissions representatives to the Hilltop. Our students enjoy learning more about the experience at colleges across the country and around the world, and we are thrilled both to introduce Hackley to new visitors and to reconnect with our colleagues on the other side of the desk.

If you have any questions for the College Counseling Office, please feel free to contact us at 914-366-2699 or collegecounseling@hackleyschool.org.
