Milton Hershey School provides its students with a top-notch education, recreation, food, housing, clothing, medical and dental care. The children live with a married houseparent couple in homes with about 10 to 12 students their age.

The school emphasizes rigorous academics, character education and hands-on work experience. Senior high school students get training in career/technical areas. Each graduating student also can earn a continuing education scholarship to pursue college or career training.
