Students here are smart, interested and invested. They work hard, but they laugh a lot, and they know how to have fun.
Learning is discussion-based, not lecture-based. Conversation around the Harkness table is where learning comes alive.
Your teachers have high expectations of you, because they see your potential—but they offer the support you need to succeed.
You will have your own advisor who will stay with you throughout your Milton years. He or she will counsel you and a small group of other students in course selection and navigating School life—keeping in touch with your academic and social progress, acting as your resource and advocate.
Your teachers, coaches, house heads and advisors will get to know you well—who you are and what you care about.
Your friends here will inspire you, involve you, and help you find out who you really are.
Milton is a big school, but with a small feel. Your classes have about 14 students in them. Everyone is part of the action.
Options are plentiful—in classes and in activities. Students choose courses and extracurriculars based on well-established interests, but Milton students also love to try new things. We think that’s important! Taking a safe risk is often the gateway to discovering new passions, and meeting new people.
Life at Milton is collaborative, not competitive. People help one another, and support each other’s talents and interests. We celebrate a lot.
You won’t just become prepared for college—you will develop the skills that prepare you for life.
