Hancock Day School is a respected independent school, that recognizes the knowledge of multiple cultures and the intermingling of various backgrounds is, at times, just as valuable as anything students will learn academically. Therefore, we are committed to creating a diverse, enriching, and positive environment for our students, faculty, and staff. Hancock Day School admits students regardless of race, creed, color, or national origin, provided these students meet our academic qualifications.
