Education, Boarding School
Milton Hershey School provides a cost-free education to selected students. At MHS, we are committed to providing students with a top-notch education and care using a whole child approach that allows students to overcome the obstacles lower-income and working-class families face and live out their dreams. Our holistic approach to care includes services at no cost to our students including medical, dental, and social work services, as well as food, clothing, and a nurturing home life. MHS is a home and school for students year round and they may return home over the summer, during breaks, and over weekends. The Home Life experience is at the core of each child’s stability and safety while they are here in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
Each child is cared for by a married houseparent couple who provide guidance, support, and discipline 0utside of the classroom. Houseparents, teachers, and other MHS staff all work together to keep parents/guardians informed and in touch with their student. It’s a team effort and parents/guardians play a key role!
