Surrounded by Support
Parents and sponsors are an important part of the Milton Hershey School community. We want to make sure you have everything you need to support your child, and that you feel supported, too. Explore our support resources, specifically geared to help parents and sponsors transition to having a child at MHS.
Strength of a Spartan Sponsor
When it gets tough to be away from your child, we’ll help you tap into our Sacred Values, the four key qualities of being a Spartan Sponsor:
- Positive Spirit
- Mutual Respect
- Commitment to Mission
These qualities keep you strong in your dedication to both the school and your child. They help you focus on the future possibilities that open up to your child at MHS.
Here you’ll find all the support resources you need to stay connected to your child and the school.
The MHS Family Relations team helps parents and sponsors build a lasting relationship with the school. Contact us for guidance in how to best support your child—or to seek additional support for yourself.
