Through interscholastic and intramural sports as well as physical education courses, all Milton students are involved in physically active and challenging pursuits that help form an exceptional educational experience. Athletic activity is certainly an expression of one form of intelligence, an intelligence that needs to be developed and nurtured, as does any other.
For the athlete interested in interscholastic play, Milton offers three levels of competition in several sports. At all levels, experienced coaches guide our athletes, often coming straight from the classroom to the field. We help individuals and teams improve, while also providing the framework for the personal growth that comes from competition and teamwork.
Milton competes in the Independent School League (ISL), which includes 16 independent schools and enjoys a long and powerful athletic tradition. Member schools are based in Greater Boston, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Games take place across all three seasons. The ISL is best known for ice hockey, arguably the strongest hockey league in the country, but also provides great competition in soccer, field hockey, football, squash, wrestling, volleyball, basketball, baseball, softball, lacrosse, tennis, track and several other sports. Milton offers interscholastic competition beyond the ISL as well, in sailing and swimming.
Students also have the opportunity to learn skills in a variety of sports through our intramural program and physical education courses. Our emphasis is on physical activity, participation, teamwork and fun.
