If you have questions or would like assistance in completing the application, please call (800) 322-3248 (toll free). We will be glad to help you in any way we can.

Selection Decisions

Since there are many more applicants than spaces available, the school emphasizes potential to benefit from the MHS program, low income, and age-appropriate behavior in student selections. Enrollment is not guaranteed. If no spaces are open or if a child does not qualify, the parent or sponsor will be informed by mail.

Preference Area

In accordance with the school’s Deed of Trust, children born in Dauphin, Lancaster, or Lebanon counties in Pennsylvania and children from the rest of Pennsylvania are given preference over children from other states.

For more than 100 years, Milton Hershey School has helped children to realize their full potential by offering a top-notch education to students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade from income-eligible families.

Milton Hershey School is a cost-free, private, coeducational school in Hershey, PA. We offer state-of-the-art facilities, advanced technology and hundreds of extracurricular activities.
