How the Process Works

​HMS uses the services of SSS (School and Student Services) recommended by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). All parents−including unmarried, divorced or separated, or stepparents−must submit all of the required financial aid application documents to be considered for a financial aid grant.

HMS uses the Report of Financial Contribution (RFC) as a guide to making a grant determination. If the RFC determines that a family needs more financial aid than High Mowing is able to grant, we offer the most generous aid possible and ask the family to explore additional options. Our Director of Finance and Operations can offer suggestions for payment plans and loans.

All offers of financial aid are awarded on an annual basis. Application must be made each year and the offer is calculated using the most recent financial data. The student must remain in good social and academic standing. Parents must be up-to-date with their school account to be considered for financial aid in a subsequent year.
