3. Submit Teacher Recommendations and School Records

Parents must send Far Brook’s teacher recommendation and transcript request forms through the application portal after their admissions application has been submitted. These are required for all grades with the exception of Nursery 3 or Nursery 4 applicants who have not yet attended school or daycare.

Applicants for Nursery 3s through Grade 1 submit one recommendation; applicants for Grades 2-7 submit two recommendations. Applicants for Grades 2-7 also submit transcripts from their current school.

All required supporting documents (teacher recommendations, transcripts) must be submitted by January 19, 2024.

4. Schedule Applicant's In-person Visit

All students visit Far Brook as part of the admissions process either for a playgroup with other applicants (Grades N3, N4, K), a group visit with other applicants (Grades 1, 2, 3), or a classroom visit at Far Brook for the day (Grades 4-7). All visits can be scheduled through the parent portal once you have submitted your child’s application.

5. Schedule Applicant's Virtual Testing

Far Brook does individual, virtual assessments for applicants to Kindergarten through Grade 7. These individual assessments range in duration from 30-45 minutes (Grades K, 1) to 30-60 minutes (Grades 2-7). Appointments are available through the checklist in your parent portal.

Applicants for Grades 5, 6, and 7 may submit results from the SSAT or CTP IV, if taken within the last year, but this is not a requirement.

6. Schedule a Parent Meeting

You will sign up for a 30-minute virtual parent meeting through the checklist in the parent portal. This is another opportunity for us to get to know your family and for you to get to know us!
