Hockaday has great academics and great sports. It has good professors and the people there may be good future contacts. There is even a boarding program for out of towners. But, at the same time, the school's environment is not the best. the school was not founded on good principles and it shows today. By my experience, most of the girls are not nice and unladylike. It's a little cut-throat and may make some girls unhappy. Probably not the best bet unless academics are paramount to you and nothing else.
