Tour Apartment & Student Home

Imagine Yourself Living Here

At Milton Hershey School, we strive to create a stable, supportive home for every student. Each home houses eight to 12 students of the same gender and age range. A married houseparent couple lives in a private apartment attached to the student home. Houseparent apartments have their own entrance.


Houseparent Apartments

As houseparents, couples live in an apartment designed to give you private living space within the student home. The apartment features:

  • Private entrance and patio
  • Bedrooms
  • Bathroom(s)
  • Living area
  • Kitchen with appliances

All apartment utility costs and maintenance are covered by the school, so you have more time to focus on home life.

Houseparent Life

Making the change to life as a full-time houseparent is a big step. You’ll be in a new living arrangement, caring for a large group of students, and you may even be in a new town. But don’t worry. We’ll give you plenty of sweet reasons to build a new life in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
