Let's Start Your Application

We are excited that you are interested in becoming a part of our community. Far Hills values diversity and admits students of any race, color, or ethnic origin. All students applying for admission to the school must complete the admission process in order to be considered.

Step 1: Application Form 

Complete and submit the online application

Once the application is submitted, then a school visit for the applicant will be scheduled with the family.

Step 2: School Records and Teacher Recommendations

Request school records and current teacher recommendations through your online enrollment application dashboard.

Step 3: Classroom Visits, Learning Assessment, Parent Conversation

Preschool and Kindergarten applicants participate in a classroom visit where they will interact with our teachers and the other students. During this time, teachers assess the applicants within the social context of the classroom and spend one-on-one time with each applicant. 

Grades 1–8 applicants spend a full day at our school, 8:00 a.m. - 2:45 p.m., where they are accompanied by a student host and visit classrooms in their current grade level, giving both the applicant and our teachers the opportunity to get to know one another. Learning Assessments are given during the student's visit day. 

Grades 4–8, the results from one standardized test from the current school year are required. We accept the following: NJASK, IOWA, SSAT, ISEE. If your child does not have a current standardized test result to submit, please visit Educational Records Bureau's (ERB) website at https://www.erblearn.org/ to schedule a date for your child to take the ISEE.

Parent Conversations will be scheduled in person to coordinate with the applicant's visit or virtually. The purpose of the conversation is to learn more about the applicant from the perspective of the parent, answer questions, and provide any additional information needed by FHCDS or by the family. Conversations typically take thirty minutes.
