Physical education and athletics are integral elements of the Milton experience. The school offers a comprehensive program which includes physical education classes, intramural sports and interscholastic athletics. Students are required to elect one of these options each season of the year, although Class I students are exempt during the spring. Opportunities exist to work with the athletic trainer, to be manager of a team, or to do an independent study in athletics.
Soccer is my main sport, and I really enjoy the team. The friendships go beyond the field. At Milton, you have countless opportunities to try something new. That’s one of the most valuable things about this School. When I came here from Ghana, I had never even seen snow, let alone skated on ice! One of my friends who plays hockey suggested I try it. I skated with him before I tried out. I fell A LOT! But I stuck with it, made the JV team, and played in a few games this year. Stepping out of your comfort zone to try something new is important, and it’s easy to do that at Milton.Jerry Ozor
