Our STEAM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math), visual and performing arts opportunities, athletics options, and the Year-Round Experiences program allow students to find and develop their personal interests and set a course for their future. Milton Hershey School students experience a rich culture of continuous learning. If they have an interest, we have a way to help them cultivate it.

In addition, the MHS Learning Assistance Program provides services to students experiencing learning difficulties. We offer extra assistance in reading, math, study skills, speech and language therapy. We also host an after-school homework club. Combined with the support and guidance of their houseparents, students get the encouragement they need to succeed.

Maximizing students’ potential

We understand that students arrive at MHS with varying degrees of academic preparation. Our staff is committed to help your child grow and achieve academically regardless of their prior levels of study.
