The tuition fee is payable in full when billed, prior to the start of the summer session. Students will not be permitted to attend classes until tuition is remitted in full. Horace Mann School reserves the right to cancel courses or programs at any time. Cancellations will be posted on the website and we will make every effort to notify students in under-enrolled courses as early as possible.

During Summer School, lunch is provided for students and included in tuition. They can choose to eat what we are offering or to order in food to campus to be delivered. In addition to lunches, Summer School provides a morning snack and an afternoon snack each day in the Summer School office. Students, however, are encouraged to pack additional snacks as the day is long and intense -- especially for those in the summer Science courses -- and hunger is not conducive to to productive work.

Door to door transportation from Manhattan only is provided to Horace Mann by SuperTrans Inc. in Yonkers, NY from selected areas for an additional fee; traditionally we have not had enough students from New Jersey, the Bronx, or Westchester attending Summer School to run a bus from these areas. All information on costs and routes for Summer 2020 is available by clicking on this application form. SuperTrans will make every effort to accommodate transportation requests. In the event that they are unable to provide transportation to a particular location, families will be notified, and the transportation fee will be refunded in full.


To download an application form, please go to Credit-bearing Academic Programs. Applications will be accepted anytime up to the first day of Summer School, provided there is still room in the course. For Horace Mann students applying to any course, you will need the approval of your parents and your grade dean will be alerted that you are registering for a course.

Course Withdrawal & Refund Policy

Course Withdrawals for all courses:

Only under unusual circumstances – to be determined by the Director of Summer School -- is the $500 deposit refundable.

  • Students who withdraw within one week of but prior to the start date will receive a 75% refund.
  • Students who withdraw within the first five days of the course will receive a 50% refund.
