Human Sexuality and Relationships (HS&R)
A favorite Milton optional course, HS&R enrolls students in Classes I–III who are interested in learning about sexuality and relationships in a comfortable, supportive environment.
The Outdoor Program
The mission of the Outdoor Program is twofold: to support students for whom outdoor life is as important as “regular life;” to instill in interested students a lifelong appreciation for the value of our natural environment and the pleasure that it can bring. As part of a diverse group, students learn how to lead and follow with confidence and competence. The Outdoor Program attracts students with the chance to have fun outdoors, learn new skills, and gain confidence meeting new challenges with friends and faculty. New England’s mountains, rivers, quarries and forests are the program’s classrooms. Outdoor education at Milton focuses on excellent preparation and on using the right tools for hiking, climbing or kayaking.
The Academy boasts an indoor climbing wall. Outdoor gear includes a fleet of eight kayaks, mountaineering boots, rock-climbing shoes, tents, four-season sleeping bags, outdoor cooking equipment, as well harnesses, ropes and other climbing equipment.
Community Service Program
Milton’s Community Service Program seeks to instill a passion for service in the Academy’s students and faculty. Through providing a multitude of opportunities from tutoring in local schools, to donating blood, to assisting the elderly, the program strives to provide those in the Milton community with interesting and meaningful service opportunities. On average, 180 students perform weekly service at over 30 different organizations in the Greater Boston area. More than 200 other students participate in multi-annual events such as the Greater Boston Foodbank, the Special Olympics, the Blood Drive, and mural painting with Sidewalk Sam. The entire Milton community participates in the annual Oxfam Banquet and the bi-annual Community Service Day.
