Attend a Prospective Family Event

Throughout the year, Milton Hershey School hosts events for prospective families. These Family Events give families the chances to learn more about MHS. Families can speak with MHS admissions counselors over a meal and learn more about our top-notch programming. Families will also hear about our whole-child approach to education. Other key information will be provided during these very informative gatherings.

*Due to the coronavirus pandemic, MHS has suspended in-person Prospective Family Events. Instead, we encourage you to watch our Virtual Prospective Family Event presentation and be in touch with any questions.

Visit Campus

*Due to the coronavirus pandemic, on-campus tours currently are not being offered.

Families are invited to schedule a campus visit during our Friday Tours. These events provide the chance to see our facilities and ask questions to tour guides. Contact our Admission Office via email or at 800-322-3248 to schedule your visit.
