A co-educational private school for Preschool–Grade Eight

Financial Aid

Affording Far Hills.

Upper School students highlight a workbook to study.


Far Hills uses School and Student Services (SSS) to collect necessary financial information on income, assets, family size, and the number of siblings enrolled in schools with tuition fees. A needs analysis report is prepared by SSS that suggests the amount a family can contribute to educational costs. Since not all families’ financial circumstances are equal, the Far Hills Financial Aid Committee uses the SSS evaluation as the starting point to review each applicant. Financial Aid grants are awarded annually; a family must reapply each year they seek financial assistance.

Interested families must submit financial information through SSS

Financial Aid dollars are allocated based on need and spaces available within a division or grade. 

*Financial Aid eligibility begins in Kindergarten.
