Far Brook’s birthday cutoff is September 1 of the year the child would be attending. By that date, applicants for Nursery 3s must be 3, applicants for Nursery 4s must be 4, and Kindergarten applicants must be 5. Nursery students must be toilet trained when they begin school.

3. 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. This is required for all grades with the exception of Nursery 3 or Nursery 4 applicants who have not yet attended school.

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

All required supporting documents (teacher recommendations, transcripts) must be submitted by January 25, 2021.

4. Applicant Virtual Visit

Typically, all students visit Far Brook as part of the admissions process. At this time our campus is closed to visitors so once your application has been submitted, the Admissions Office will contact you to schedule a virtual visit or playgroup.

  • Applicants for Kindergarten and Grade 1 will be contacted to schedule a (one-on-one) virtual developmental screening.
