Affording HMS

The Hudson Montessori School financial assistance program is designed to make an HMS education possible for all families based on demonstrated financial need and the availability of funds. HMS is proud to use the Clarity Application to determine a family’s level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application which includes assets, income, expenses, and debts.  Tax documents for 2022 are automatically uploaded from the IRS as part of the application process.

To get started, please go to the Clarity Application and create an account and, when prompted, enter HMS’ unique school code, 7545.  The application typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. The Clarity Application is also mobile-friendly so you can complete it from anywhere. You are also able to save your progress and return at any time. At the end of the application, there is a $55 fee to submit.

The deadline for completing the financial aid application is February 29, 2024.  Awards will be communicated by March 29, 2024. Families who are applying for financial assistance may wait to pay their 2024-25 enrollment deposit until after they receive notification of their financial assistance award.

If you need support during the process of completing your application, there is in-app support available as well as email support at in both English and Spanish. The application itself is also fully translated into Spanish.
