Students must be potty trained prior to their start in the Preschool program.
Applicants must be 3 through 4 years old by October 1 of the year of entry.
Applicants must be 5 years old by October 1 the year of entry.
Grades 1 through 8
The applicant's current grade level and achievement, as well as date of birth, are used to determine grade placement.
We adhere to the October 1 cutoff date unless there is significant evidence or reason to consider otherwise. We do so because appropriate social/emotional placement is more likely within set chronological limits. Appropriate social placement supports a student's confidence in taking the necessary risks involved in learning. At all grade levels, Far Hills Country Day School challenges students to achieve their greatest potential.
