Hogarth Country Day School
Children are accepted regardless of race, color, creed, or national or ethnic origin. Registration is done on a first-come, first-served basis according to availability of space in each class. We strongly suggest that you schedule an observation before enrolling your child. Observations are by appointment only, and you should plan to spend a minimum of thirty minutes but no more than one hour on your observation day. We encourage you to bring your child along, but ask that you keep any siblings at home if at all possible.
How Do HCDS Grads Do Beyond Hogarth?
I am often asked this question by prospective parents who are new to the
community and do not know any Hogarth families. An advantage of being a
long-time resident of a small community is the ability to keep track of former
students. Hogarth children are ready for whatever academic path life leads
them down -- public school, private school, or homeschool.
Hogarth children participate in a wide variety of extracurricular activities and many Hogarth children have been chosen Good Citizen Of The Month while in elementary school. At least three HCDS alumni are Eagle Scouts -- Sam, and brothers Shawn and Matt, who is also a National Merit Scholar and is in an honors biochemisty/pre-med course of study at the University of Oklahoma. Shawn and Matt's sister Katie started at the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis the summer of 2010.
children traveled throughout Europe while studying at college. Several Hogarth children have been selected to participate in the
St. Paul's Advanced Studies Summer Program following their junior year in high
school, and Hogarth students are numbered among the graduates of Phillips Exeter
Academy and Berwick Academy.
children have been accepted at many colleges and universities, among them the
University of New Hampshire, the University of Oklahoma, Boston University, Holy Cross, Ithaca College, St. Anselm's, Syracuse,
Emerson, the Rhode Island School of Design, St. Lawrence University, Babson, Clark,
Colgate, Brown, West Point, Annapolis, Wellesley and Harvard.
A Hogarth alumnus interned on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and another toured Europe as the pianist with her college glee club. Craig is an engineer at NASA. Bubby received his Ph.D. and is now Dr. Bubby. Danny graduated with honors from West Point and studied in Singapore on a Fulbright Scholarship.
Hogarth students form lifelong friendships. Michelle F., pictured above on the right with Leah, traveled from her home in Korea for Leah's wedding the summer of 2010. How do I know this? Because Michelle has been keeping me posted of her travels through life for years. She has lived, studied, and worked in Korea and China, and traveled extensively throughout the world. She has done many interesting things.
I heard from another "international" Michelle, Michelle N., about her escapades abroad. She wrote:
I am always touched to
receive postcards, letters and emails from former students keeping me updated on the
course of their lives. It is at those moments I know my students and I
forged a lifelong bond in this little classroom in Epping. Andrea
