Admission to Far Hills Country Day School is granted without regard to a candidate's ability to pay with our financial aid program, therefore, serving as a way to strengthen the student body and enrich the experience of all Far Hills students starting in Kindergarten.
Financial need is defined as the difference between the cost of an education and a family's ability to contribute to that cost. We believe that the student's family has an obligation to provide for their child's education to the extent that they are able, and therefore utilize the services of Clarity to help determine a family's eligibility for Financial Aid. Several factors, including income, assets, liabilities, and the number of children in tuition-charging schools, are taken into consideration. In order to apply, families must complete the Clarity application and file copies of the required documents with Clarity by the deadlines listed on the Far Hills website. Financial Aid awards are allocated based on need and spaces available within a division or grade.
In accordance with Far Hills Country Day School's Financial Aid Policy, parents who are divorced, separated, or have never been married are both required to file with Clarity and provide all required supporting tax documents. Financial Aid grants are awarded annually; therefore, a family must reapply each year they seek financial assistance. Unless there is a significant change in demonstrated need, Far Hills is committed to continuing support at the original level of funding. Due to the complexity of the financial aid formula, Far Hills is unable to provide analysis without a full application; however, we encourage all families who believe that they may be eligible to complete the Clarity application. Please do not send any financial documents to Far Hills. All paperwork must be submitted directly to Clarity.
