Study Abroad Programs
Immersion in a totally different surrounding opens students’ eyes, and they assimilate a new way of living and looking at the world. For many, their time abroad is a defining experience in their lives. Milton Academy offers a number of foreign study opportunities for interested students.
The Mountain School Program
The Mountain School of Milton Academy involves Class II students (juniors) in a fall or spring semester on a working 300-acre farm in Vershire, Vermont. Each semester, 45 students from more than 20 schools join a corps of faculty in a rigorous interdisciplinary program, which is centered around issues of community and the environment. Students work with faculty to help manage the farm, its gardens and animals, as well as its facilities. The semester is an ongoing exercise in individual responsibility and group cooperation. As many as nine students from Milton Academy are selected to attend the Mountain School each year.
