COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

We are #FalconSafe and #FalconStrong. Facing a fast-moving pandemic, Far Hills Country Day School’s administration, faculty, and staff swiftly forged a new path to meet our students' needs. A shared desire to help one another allowed us to open our doors for in-person instruction for the 2020-21 school year. We will continue to update our website for our plans for the 2021-22 school year. Learn More

From Far Hills Country Day School

At Far Hills, students are empowered to grow inward, outward, and upward and graduate prepared to lead at the country’s most competitive secondary schools. Together on one expansive campus, they form a tight-knit community where they connect across grade levels and challenge each other to think independently and achieve confidently.

Far Hills champions both academic excellence and emotional intelligence. Beginning in preschool and continuing through eighth grade, students are given the freedom to explore—topics of interest, themselves, and the world. Through self-directed learning, emergent curriculum, and adventure experiences, their curiosity is nourished, and their passions are uncovered.

Our expansive 54-acre campus with woodlands, gardens, and a pond provides students with opportunities to learn beyond the walls of the classroom. While Far Hills students are known for their wide-ranging achievements, it is their strength of character that truly distinguishes them.

Kindergarten at Far Hills

Academic Excellence + Emotional Intelligence Far Hills honors the unique age of Kindergartners and their gradual transition into a formal learning environment by focusing on social-emotional skills, helping them understand what it means to be part of a learning community, and assisting them in developing the growth-mindset of an independent thinker. Experiential learning is paramount (and fun)!
