  • A Safe and Supportive Community to Call Home

    Milton Hershey School students live and learn in a welcoming, supportive community.  When a child enrolls at MHS, they live in student homes with a married houseparent couple and eight to 12 children of the same gender and similar ages. In this nurturing environment, students gain the stability, support, and acceptance they need to succeed in and out of the classroom. Students often find that the bonds they form with students and staff in the student home will last a lifetime.

  • Helping Students Gain Confidence and Stability

    To ensure Milton Hershey School students have the daily necessities they need, each student   receives more than 80 articles of clothing free of charge. In our on-campus clothing center, students get fitted for their new wardrobes which include dress wear and leisure wear. With tailored, coordinated clothing, students gain the confidence to be successful in and out of the classroom.
