Activity Fee

For all Grades, an additional fee is charged to cover the cost of classroom activities, class trips, and the School yearbook. For Grades Five through Eight, the Activity Fee also includes team uniforms and transportation to and from games. In Grades Six through Eight overnight trips are included in the fee as well- the Sixth Grade trip to Washington, D.C. and the Seventh and Eighth Grade trip to the Adirondacks as well as a second trip connected to their curriculum studies.

Transportation

Far Brook School hires a private bus company to provide school bus transportation for those families who wish to subscribe. This service is provided on a break-even basis, transportation fees being set to equal the costs charged by a private bus company. Transportation fees and areas serviced vary each year depending on the number of families who sign up for this service. Usually, door-to-door service is provided. Under the present transportation laws of the State of New Jersey, students from certain districts are entitled to bus service or a payment in lieu of bus service. For the 2020-2021 school year, the “aid in lieu of transportation” amount was approximately $900.00. For more information, refer to the B6T application or contact the Business Office.

The Far Brook Fund

Fundraising plays a critical role in the viability of all independent schools, and Far Brook is no different. We must raise funds each year to help meet the operating costs of the current budget as tuition alone does not cover the full cost of an independent school education. The School depends on the contributions made by current families, alumni and their families, grandparents, foundations, faculty, administrators, and friends. Gifts to The Far Brook Fund support academic programming, faculty development, equity and inclusion work, tuition assistance, technology, art, drama, athletics, and so much more. Recently, gifts to The Far Brook Fund have also supported the measures we continue to put in place to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic: PPE, infrastructure enhancements, new outdoor classrooms, expanded technology, and pooled testing. Far Brook must raise $500,000 for the 2021-2022 school year. We ask all families to participate with their best gift. Over the last five years our current family participation has averaged 84%.

Other

After School Enrichment Programs, special tutoring, and private music lessons are available at additional cost.

Far Brook admits qualified students of any race, religion, gender, color, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, color, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission, financial aid, or other school-administered programs.
