The Hackley School’s Edward E. Ford Foundation Fellowship represents part of the school’s efforts to identify, attract, and retain teachers from historically under-represented groups—African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Middle Eastern Americans, and Native Americans. 

In exchange for a two-year teaching commitment at Hackley’s Upper School (grades 9-12) after graduating from college, fellows receive a $10,000 grant towards documented educational expenses remaining from their undergraduate education, such as loans, fees, or costs for educational materials during the final year of college.  After completing their two year teaching commitment, fellows receive an additional $5,000 per year for two years to support educational expenses in graduate school.

In addition, fellows are assigned to a faculty mentor while at Hackley to assist them in their transition to the classroom.  Fellows meet regularly with the Assistant Headmaster as well as the Upper School Director.

A regular salary for a 75% teaching load at Hackley is $37,500, and for a full load it is $50,000.
