Redefining Excellence: Learning Beyond Boundaries

Hackley’s contribution to the national conversation on the changing nature and future of education.


Hackley’s Mission

Hackley challenges students to grow in character, scholarship, and accomplishment, to offer unreserved effort, and to learn from the varying perspectives and backgrounds in our community and the world.



Like the school it describes, “Redefining Excellence” will be an active and vibrant conversation, and its implementation will be as dynamic as the ideas it contains.


Portrait of a Graduate

The “Portrait of a Graduate” connects overtly to Hackley’s mission and unique school culture with an emphasis on relationships, diversity of perspectives, accomplishment defined by serving a greater public purpose, and enduring academic skills.
