Welcome to Far Hills

Thank you for your interest in Far Hills Country Day School!

Every day, we see children succeed because they feel known and loved in our community. My own child is a testament to that. 

When my son Jacob was in second grade, he was doing “just fine” in the school he was attending, however, I wasn't seeing the courage and confidence I knew he had inside him. My son wasn’t feeling seen or heard. 

Within the first few months of his time at Far Hills, I saw a change. Suddenly, the boy who was not raising his hand because he was afraid to ask a question was taking books out of the Library to do extra research and was writing his own NJ folklore and legends at home—for fun. He learned math methods that worked for him. He was looking forward to joining the Soccer team when he entered Upper School. He was staying up past bedtime reading books the media specialist knew he would love. And, most of all, he was happy. 

Just two years into his time here at Far Hills, he stood at a podium and addressed students, faculty and staff, parents and grandparents at the end of the school year. He was able to do this because he felt heard, seen, known, and loved. He found his voice

We are proud of our community and are eager to show you how we can help your child Go Far.

Far Hills families come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. The commonality they share is a profound desire to provide their child with the best education possible in a thriving, welcoming and tight-knit community.
They get that, and so much more, at Far Hills. "
