Our graduates are known for their academic, artistic, and athletic achievements, yet it is their strength of character that truly distinguishes them. At Far Hills, students experience the freedom to discover and develop their authentic selves. They recognize and build on their strengths. They exhibit a spirit of growth that frees them to become resilient risk-takers. They grow into empathetic leaders, concerned citizens, creative problem-solvers, and independent thinkers who recognize their power to change the world.

 

"Time and again, I'm told by admission officers at secondary schools that our graduates stand out, especially during the interview. Their poise and preparedness is a testament to the confidence we nurture in all of our students from a very young age."Ed Thompson, Director of Upper School and Secondary School Placement

POWER UP

Emily Martin, Class of '21, describes how she discovered her passion for performance at Far Hills.

Articulate and self-assured, adept at expressing themselves in their unique voice, Far Hills graduates know how to effectively advocate and communicate. Since preschool, they’ve been honing their public speaking skills, delivering an average of 86 presentations by graduation.

Secondary school guidance and placement at Far Hills provides families with thorough support in the selection and application process on the path to high school. As early as sixth grade, we begin working with parents and students to find the right-fit secondary school that will continue to challenge and encourage them. By eighth grade, the placement process is in full swing, including test preparation tailored to the high schools that students have identified.
