Milton’s environment is intellectually charged. Students and faculty are excited about learning. The wide world of academic opportunity at Milton engages students in a demanding program of the highest quality. Students develop competence in the core subjects and feed intellectual passion through electives and independent study courses.
Dialogue, inquiry and reflection among faculty and students trigger extraordinary intellectual growth. As students progress, they learn to express themselves in writing and speech. They develop analytical skills and the confidence to defend their opinions. They learn to be independent, to take initiative and
to manage their own time. We expect students to direct their own schedules, participate in class, have work prepared, and balance their academic, extracurricular, and social commitments.
Our teachers are skilled at their craft, and they are also serious scholars, artists and performers. They care deeply about each student’s progress and about the liveliness of our learning environment. Milton is an active and challenging academic community, where learners young and old think deeply, respectfully and imaginatively.
