Applying for Financial Aid
Horace Mann has a strong commitment to providing Financial Aid to students who could not otherwise attend. All Financial Aid is based on need; no merit scholarships are awarded. For the 2017-2018 academic year, 15% of the students receive more than $10,600,000 in Financial Aid for tuition and related costs.
Admission to Horace Mann is need-blind. Applicants are evaluated without regard to a request for Aid. However, because we often admit more students that require Aid than we are able to fund, admitted students do not always receive Aid even if they qualify.
Application materials for 2018-2019 are now available here.
Financial Aid Application materials for 2017-18 are still available for current families; please call the office at (718) 432-4101 for information.
All families who wish to apply for Aid for September 2018 entry are required to complete the NAIS School and Student Services Parent Financial Statement (PFS). In addition, we require families to submit:
- 2016 United States 1040 form(s) and all schedules
- 2017 W-2 forms
- A signed, undated IRS Form 4506 for each tax return filed
- Horace Mann School Supplemental Form
- Other supplemental forms are sometimes required depending on family circumstances.
For current families, Financial Aid paperwork is due each year by December 1. For families applying a child for admission to Horace Mann, Aid paperwork is due by December 15th.
Both custodial and non-custodial parents must complete the required paperwork. All information provided is kept strictly confidential. The PFS must be completed on line and is available at the link above. (The PFS worksheet and instructions are also available in Spanish at the SSS website.)
