    Hockaday is amazing, it has cultivated me into becoming the girl I am today! My teachers, since 5th grade, have taught me inside and outside of the classroom. I have the opportunity of watching my classmates excel at their respective passions while finding some of my own, ranging from lacrosse to Model UN.

    There is no other school like Hockaday. Our teachers challenge us with new topics and ideas in our studies, but also come out to support us in sports events and fine arts showcases. The friends that I have made at Hockaday compare to no where else. I always know that I can trust them, and, most importantly, make me laugh. Lastly, I know that after graduating that I will feel prepared to take on the world with both its exciting adventures and challenges with confidence after the Hockaday education I have received on lessons for in and outside of the classroom. Hockaday can at times be challenging but cultivates an inclusive, supportive, and positive community that I am proud to be a part of.
    Hockaday's faculty, administration and community has supported our girls as they have grown into confident and strong young women. We now have a 16 year old and an 13 year old and it's clear that they think big, work hard, follow through and exhibit strong leadership qualities. We are thrilled with the investment we have made in their futures and we are confident that they will lead limitless lives filled with accomplishments and the ability to overcome any obstacle life brings.
