Building Strong Character and Leadership through Social and Emotional Learning
To position students for lifelong success, Milton Hershey School has developed a comprehensive social and emotional learning (SEL) program. SEL lessons take place in the classroom and the student home, and promote character and leadership development. Through self-reflection, self esteem development, and goal-setting exercises, students learn to act with social intelligence and maintain a growth mindset.
