Our missions and values are integral to our identity because they define our commitment to providing a supportive and enriching educational environment where every child can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

They ensure that we uphold high standards of excellence in education, promote a culture of respect and inclusivity, and prepare our students to become compassionate and responsible leaders in their communities. These principles guide our daily efforts and shape the future of our students.

Our Mission

Through academic excellence and character development, Far Hills Country Day School provides each child brilliant beginnings for success in the modern world.



We value and honor each individual, recognizing the inherent worth and dignity of all members of our community.
