Community in Action

Milton Academy’s students, families, and employees represent a rich tapestry of identities, perspectives, and experiences.

Featured Initiatives

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.
