The preparation to lead and confidently achieve

At our private Preschool through Grade 8 school in Somerset County, NJ, 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 students share a growth mindset that contributes to an experiential, student-centered approach to learning, that champions both academic excellence and emotional intelligence. Here at Far Hills, we call this IQ+EQ.


Far Hills students are encouraged to support one another as they all rise together. This deep connectivity between students fuels a strong work ethic, deep empathy, a willingness to try new things, and the development of a confident sense of self.


Far Hills Falcons soar! They go on to attend the finest boarding and day schools in the country, where they are well-prepared and exhibit strength of character in all areas of the secondary school experience, from the classroom to the fields to the stage.
