A co-educational private school for Preschool–Grade Eight



In the face of a fast-moving pandemic, spring of 2020 required swift action from Far Hills Country Day School’s administration, faculty, and staff. Overnight, we pivoted from having a campus full of smiling, curious students, to meeting those faces online. Rather than dwell on what was supposed to be, we forged ahead with a new, fluid plan that allowed us to continue to work with our students in the best ways possible. Our Kindergarten students completed their Wonder Projects and presented them digitally; our Grade 5 students went virtual whale watching; and our art department coordinated an art pen-pal initiative. Challenging? Yes. Different? Yes. Successful? YES! 

We are thrilled for the 2021–22 school year and look forward to returning programs and activities our community knows and loves. It is our responsibility to provide a safe learning environment for our students, faculty, and staff, as well as a safe community for our families. With this in mind, we have crafted the 2021–22 Back-To-School Plan as we continue heading down the path to return to normalcy. 

Although circumstances change often and quickly, we will continue to evaluate what is best for all constituencies and remain flexible. At Far Hills, we all have the common goal of ensuring that our children continue to grow through these challenging times. The Far Hills community is #falconstrong, but we're even stronger together. Let's head into the fall with the mindset that this will be the best school year yet!
