The Hockaday School: The Hockaday School in Dallas, TX, established in 1913 by Miss Ela Hockaday and a group of concerned parents, provides an outstanding college preparatory education for girls in grades 8 through 12 (boarding); and Pre-K through 12 (day). The boarding experience at The Hockaday School is unique and unlike any other you will find.
Originally founded as a boarding school, Hockaday has kept its boarding community small and intimate within a school population that has grown to over 1,000 students. Our staff does not serve double duty as faculty members but instead are devoted 100% to their residence jobs. As a community of 73 boarders, we offer an incredible amount of diversity, representing numerous states and an average of 12 countries each year. On the other hand, our commitment to remain under 75 boarders allows us always to feel like a family and a close-knit community.
Located on an expansive campus, Hockaday is in the residential area of north Dallas, Texas, in the South Central United States. Superb facilities allow us to focus on our studies while making boarding life more relaxed and comfortable.
The residence halls' rooms and lounges have an atmosphere more like a home than a dorm and include WiFi, plasma televisions, and full kitchens so we can bake treats or make our favorite meals anytime we want.
