Milton Hershey School

Address: E Governor Rd, Hershey, PA 17033
Website: http://www.mhs-pa.org/

The Milton Hershey School was founded in 1909 by the chocolatier himself, Milton Hershey, as a way to give back to the community.

A private, co-ed philanthropic school serving PK-12, this boarding school is non-sectarian in its beliefs, as was its founder.

Students attend a mandatory Sunday chapel but are accepted to the school from all religious backgrounds and belief systems.

In the admissions process, the Milton Hershey School takes into account a student’s financial and social need in addition to his or her potential for learning.

Notably, the school has the most land and financial resources of any boarding school providing education to students in need due in no small part to Hershey’s donation of his entire estate, wealth, and controlling interest in the Hershey Company to the school.
