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 2020-2021 academic year, 15% of the students receive more than $11,700,000 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.
Financial Aid Application materials for 2020-2021 are still available to current families; please contact our office at 718-432-4101 for more information.
All families who wish to apply for Aid for September 2021 entry are required to complete the School and Student Services Parent Financial Statement (PFS). In addition, we require families to submit:
- 2019 United States 1040 form(s) and all schedules
- 2020 W-2 forms and 1099 forms, where applicable
- 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 November 15. For families applying a child for admission to Horace Mann, Aid paperwork is due by November 15.
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.)
