A co-educational private school for Preschool–Grade Eight

Upper School

Students in Grades 5–8 exhibit a spirit of Unprecedented growth.

In our private middle school in Somerset County, NJ, students experience the freedom to discover and develop their authentic selves. They are self-aware of their strengths and have the tools and inspiration to build on them. Students grow into empathetic leaders, concerned citizens, creative problem-solvers, and independent thinkers who recognize their power to change the world.

In the video below, you'll hear all about the middle school years at Far Hills Country Day School from our Director of Upper School, Director of Operations and Secondary School Placement, and an Upper School teacher.



Our Upper School curriculum supports and encourages each student's curiosity and passion as we prepare them for what's to come in secondary school. The balance of academic excellence and emotional intelligence—what we call IQ + EQ—prepares each child to be responsible citizens ready to make a positive impact on the world. 





Our Upper School includes Grade 4 through Grade 8. Each of the buttons below will take you to the corresponding grade-level page for a closer look at what your child will do every step of the way through our middle school school experience.
