Milton Hershey School has partnered with Temple University to offer college-level courses to eligible high school seniors. The new program is one of the latest examples of the school’s commitment to promoting postsecondary success for students from underprivileged backgrounds.
Efforts to expand college access for low income high school graduates have been ongoing at MHS for the last several years. This new college-readiness program is one more tool to help the school’s diverse student body gain access to higher education.
Temple University faculty members teach courses on the MHS campus to a selected group of high school students. Students may enroll in 15 credits of college-level courses during their senior year to help prepare them for a full-time college-level course load. Students will also participate in a four-week internship with Hershey Entertainment & Resorts or The Hershey Company. The program began in Jan. 2015.
