Milton Hershey School® (MHS) is hosting a Family Event next week in Front Royal. Family Events are informal get-togethers that offer everyone – especially children – a chance to learn more about Milton Hershey School.
Following a free meal and brief presentation, attendees will have time to ask questions and talk with MHS staff, students, parents, and alumni.
No registration is required to attend a Family Event. For more information, please call 800-322-3248.

Children are accepted year-round through a rolling admissions process.
