Milton Academy’s new and renovated buildings are nationally recognized green buildings. The U.S. Green Building Council has confirmed that fact, awarding Milton a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Certification. The Schwarz Student Center, Warren Hall and Wigglesworth Hall earned this recognition for excellence in the built environment — a place among the country’s finest “measured” green buildings. “Measured” buildings document meeting certain environmental standards, thereby earning points toward a total rating. Milton is among the first independent schools, and one of the few academic buildings in the country, to receive a LEED certification. According to the U.S. Green Building Council, the LEED certification identifies Milton’s buildings as pioneering examples of sustainable design; it recognizes Milton’s leadership role in transforming the building industry and marketplace. The goal of the LEED Green Building Rating System is to lead environmentally responsible, healthy and efficient buildings into the mainstream.
