Community in Action
Milton Academy’s students, families, and employees represent a rich tapestry of identities, perspectives, and experiences. The Department of Equity, Inclusion, and Justice works in partnership with every part of our K-12 community to build an inclusive, respectful, and caring school together. The principles and practices of an equitable and inclusive learning community are reflected within all our divisions, and the initiatives listed below provide a window into a selection of current, developmentally-appropriate learning opportunities.

Faculty and Staff Education and Training
Adults in the Milton community engage in professional development on topics ranging from the creation of inclusive workspaces and classrooms to focused sessions addressing specific disciplines, roles, and areas of interest. In addition to in-house professional development, all Milton employees participate in a multi-day program with VISIONS, Inc., a nonprofit organization specializing in diversity and inclusion training and consulting. Affinity options for employees promote connection across multiple categories of identity including ability, gender, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. Employees are also encouraged to participate in local and national conferences exploring equity and inclusion.
