Academics

Education That Leads to Success

At Milton Hershey School, we strongly believe every child deserves the best. That means the absolute best teachers, facilities, and academics—regardless of a family’s income. Every day we see exactly what our students can achieve when given the best opportunities in education.

A Strong Beginning

From an early age, we help our students build a foundation to help them reach their full potential.

High School and Beyond

Our high school program, called Senior Division, challenges students with rigorous academics. We also encourage hands-on learning through our Career and Technical Education program. It doesn’t stop there. We even help students move seamlessly from MHS to college or a career.

The Whole Child Approach

At MHS, we focus on much more than traditional academics in the classroom. Through the whole child philosophy, our education program helps shape every aspect of students’ lives—character, self-esteem, wellness, and more.
