How Schools Can Help Break the Cycle of Poverty: A Whole Child Approach
More than 16 million children in the United States—nearly one out of four—live below the federal poverty level with their families earning less than $23,550 annually. These low-income households face many challenges, from lacking economic resources, to little or no access to health and wellness care. Read the white paper, “How Schools Can Help Break the Cycle of Poverty: A Whole Child Approach” to gain valuable insight into the specific challenges children from poverty face.

At Milton Hershey School, we believe every child has limitless potential. To help students make the most of their education, we provide enrichment programs, highly qualified teachers, the ability to earn college credits, and dozens of extracurricular activities. Our comprehensive STEAM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math), visual and performing arts opportunities, athletics options, and the Year-Round Experiences program also allow students to find and develop their personal interests.
