Tuition assistance may be available for families who qualify. Please see Tuition Assistance for more information regarding Far Brook’s Financial Aid policy, requirements, and deadlines. Far Brook offers three tuition payment options: one installment (payable July 1), two installments (payable July 1 and December 1), or nine monthly installments (payable May – January). A non-refundable deposit is collected from new families when a new contract is submitted, and from returning families when a contract is renewed in the February prior to the upcoming school year.

Additional Expenses

At Far Brook, as at most independent schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of operating the school. In addition to tuition and fees, parents will be contacted regarding voluntary participation in the Annual Fund which helps to cover the annual operating budget. As a non-profit, independent educational institution, we rely on parents, alumni, and friends for voluntary support. All contributions to the Annual Fund are tax-deductible.

The activity fee covers the cost of classroom activities, field trips, expenses associated with interscholastic athletics, and the overnight trips taken by the Junior High. There are no additional fees for text books or lunch. Text books are distributed in class. Students bring their own lunch each day.

Bus transportation may be available for students in certain locations for an additional fee, depending upon the number and geographic range of requests.

After-School Programs are offered for an additional fee.

Instrumental Music Lessons can be arranged through the Music department for an additional fee. 

Financial Aid for these additional expenses is available in accordance with Far Brook’s current guidelines. See Tuition Assistance for additional information.
