About Milton Hershey School

Exclusively for children from lower-income families, Milton Hershey School offers a top-notch education and supportive living environment, with just about every student need covered at no cost — even a way to accrue money to use for college.

As an MHS student, your grandchild will be guided, nurtured and challenged to maximize his or her potential while preparing him or her for college, a career and life. Small class sizes provide individualized academic attention and support. Athletic, recreation and arts facilities offer amazing opportunities for students to explore their interests.

As a grandparent, you already make a difference for your grandchild. Now, you can do even more to help them work toward a better future.

About Prospective Family Outreach Events

Throughout the year, Milton Hershey School hosts informational events specifically designed for interested families  to learn more about the opportunities available at MHS.

At these events,  MHS admissions counselors share the school’s fascinating history, which began with a dream and vision created by founders Milton and Catherine Hershey. Families learn about the school’s holistic, whole-child approach to education, including cost-free wraparound services such as medical and dental care, clothing, food, and a safe and secure campus.

“Milton Hershey School is a residential campus and an extension of children’s existing family,” said Stacey Spangenburg, an admissions counselor at MHS. “We work as a team with students’ families at home to help them mature and grow.”

Grandparents Tom and Sally Dunlap made the decision to enroll their grandchildren at MHS. The boys are currently in fifth and sixth grade.

“We raised our grandchildren for a little over five years… but we realized, we’re getting older,” Sally Dunlap said. “They love [the school] and they’re thriving. It’s really like we’re at the sweetest place on earth.”

Milton Hershey School organizes multiple admissions events throughout the year to help prospective families determine if MHS is a good fit for their family. View a list of  upcoming admissions events.
