The Office of Student Character & Leadership enhances the quality of life for students through programs that care for students’ social, emotional, spiritual, and physical health. The Student Programs and Religious Programs offices together offer programming that supports the School’s core values of Integrity, Positive Spirit, Commitment to Mission, and Mutual Respect — the Milton Hershey Way.
Students are strongly encouraged to take on roles both within the School and the community that will help to develop their communication and leadership skills. Through the Office of Student Programs, students can choose from a wide array of clubs, community service projects, and leadership programs.
Students are encouraged to take on roles within the School community and local community to help develop communication and leadership skills. Here are some of the programs available that teach responsibility, leadership, and character.
Programming is designed to develop the moral, ethical, and spiritual understanding of our student body.
Student Government Association (SGA)
The SGA in each division assists in the development of leaders who do not strive to be “first,” but who are first to strive for the success of those whom they lead.
P.R.I.D.E. is an acronym for Positive Relationships and Interpersonal Development through Extracurricular activities. Its goal is to build a sense of community at MHS by encouraging participation in extracurricular events.
Students learn the importance of helping others by participating in community service projects.
