The goal of Milton Hershey School®'s CES program is not to help students simply attend post-secondary schools, but to help students GRADUATE with an undergraduate degree from post-secondary schools that are the right fit for their talents, interests, experiences, and resources.
Graduation is the culmination of our combined efforts to accomplish Mr. & Mrs. Hershey's goal to "nurture and educate children in social and financial need to lead fulfilling and productive lives." As our society advances and continues to produce ever growing specialized and complex work environments, post-secondary education has become more crucial than ever before. We celebrate the accomplishments of all of our graduates who have advanced their education beyond the high school years!
Please send our office the following information in the weeks following your graduation so that we may document your successes and use your story to help future Milton Hershey School graduates:
- Copy of your Diploma or Certificate
- Copy of your Final Academic Transcript
For students (mainly Class of 2011 and later) who have borrowed Direct Subsidized Loans as part of their CES Payment Calculation Formula, remember that MHS cannot help to repay any of those loans until you submit the following to the CES Office within six (6) months of graduation: (1) College Diploma, (2) Final Academic Transcript, and (3) Student Loan Repayment Documentation.
Finally, please remember all the generous gifts that have been bestowed upon you in your young lives and strive to share your blessings with others. The Bible teaches The Golden Rule: "Do Unto Others As You Would Have Done Unto You" and "You Received Without Payment; Give Without Payment." Embody these noble goals by teaching others, serving others, and supporting those in need. Become active members of your communities, civic and charitable organizations, church councils, school boards, voter registration teams, etc., and give to others in any way possible. Through your actions make the world a little better place to live each day!
