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 (many opened just 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.
