To the students of Milton Academy:
This catalogue holds within its pages myriad opportunities for you as a scholar. The courses described enrich the Milton Academy curriculum, and I encourage you to take your time as you read about and consider the offerings you’ll find here.
The various disciplines will allow you to cultivate a passion, explore a new interest, and examine different perspectives. Course selection is an opportunity for you to build a program that complements your interests in the classroom, your activities on Milton’s campus, and the ambitions you have for the future.
Here are a few strategies that may guide you as you make your choices.
- Outline the courses that you may want to take over your entire Milton career, keeping in mind graduation requirements. Some courses have prerequisites; many do not need to be taken in a particular year.
- Second choices can be important, as some courses may fill up and others may not run if enrollment is insufficient.
- Advisors, classroom teachers, students, and the registrar can be helpful to you as you make your decisions. Ask questions, and take advantage of their wisdom and guidance.
- Milton students are truly creative and critical thinkers, and engaged and independent learners. I encourage you to use this catalogue as a valuable tool, as it gives you the freedom to develop your own rigorous academic curriculum, which is at the core of the Milton experience. Expand your knowledge, challenge your perceptions of the world, and commit yourself to a learning experience that will inspire and transform you.
