Enrolling your child at Milton Hershey School is a difficult decision, but an education at MHS will help your child realize a brighter future.

From our top-notch academics and supportive Home Life program to our Continuing Education Scholarship and a variety of extracurricular activities, MHS prepares students for achievement beyond expectation.

Your commitment to the mission of MHS is a powerful influence in your child’s achievement.

By supporting the school’s policies and engaging with teachers and houseparents, you are demonstrating your dedication to helping your student reach his or her full potential.

We also encourage you to have open lines of communication with your child’s houseparents, along with regular interactions directly with your child through phone calls, letters, campus visits and long weekend visits.

Visiting your child

Milton Hershey School promotes the active, ongoing relationship and involvement of parents and families.

By combining the five weekend overnight visits allowed to students with our scheduled long weekend breaks, students are given, on average, the opportunity to visit home once a month during the school year.

Read the specifics of our MHS Visitation Policy.

Parents/sponsors are also welcome to visit their children during our weekend daytime visiting hours as follows:

Elementary School students: Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Middle School students: Saturday 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
High School students: Saturday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Year-Round Experiences Program

Houseparents will receive information about Year-Round Experiences (YRE) program summer options and share the offerings with parents/sponsors in the spring of each year. Houseparents will meet with each student to discuss YRE programming options and also communicate with parents/sponsors regarding your child’s summer plans.

Parents/sponsors are able to share their child’s interests with houseparents as students sign up to participate in the programming of their choice.
