About Hackley School
Located on a 285-acre woodland campus in Tarrytown, NY, Hackley School is a K-12 coeducational day and five-day boarding school. Visitors are drawn to the beauty of Hackley’s historic Quad, yet the School’s facilities – library , Upper School classrooms, athletics fields and cross country trails opened within the last year, and recently added Lower School, Middle School and Science facilities on a gracefully designed campus – rival those of nationally known boarding schools.
For 113 years, Hackley has welcomed all with the words carved over the entry: “Enter here to be and find a friend.” The warmth of Hackley’s community enables both challenge and nurture, giving students the means to set and attain high personal goals. Supporting student achievement in rigorous academics, arts, athletics, and community service, Hackley honors commitment and strength of character, with a mission statement that underscores the importance of these values: “Hackley challenges students to grow in character, scholarship, and accomplishment, to offer unreserved effort, and to learn from our community’s varying perspectives and backgrounds.”
By committing energy, time, and imagination to serving ...the needs of people beyond Hackley, students experience the satisfaction of helping others and gain appreciation for the complexity and concerns of the larger community. A Hackley education prepares students to think and act with care and effectiveness both in college and beyond. Hackley is also a member of Round Square.
