Milton Hershey School provides children with the opportunity to have a top-notch education that focuses on their entire learning experience. Milton Hershey School is a cost-free private school providing all students medical care, housing, and extracurricular activities. The school was founded by Milton Hershey and his wife Catherine, who were unable to have children themselves and wanted to help orphaned boys achieve an education they would not have been able to have otherwise.

Houseparents manage homes of eight to 12 students of the same gender and around the same age. Houseparents nurture students while helping to build character and providing academic support. From assisting with homework to overseeing chores and from preparing meals to playing board games, our houseparents create a family-like atmosphere in their student homes.

Houseparents teach and maintain strong core values that make a positive difference in the lives of the children. As a residential school, MHS truly care for the needs of the whole child, and houseparents play a substantial role in ensuring student success.
