Milton Academy is an independent college preparatory K–12 school offering both boarding and day for grades 9–12. Now in its third century, Milton develops confident, creative, and independent thinkers. In an intimate, friendly setting, faculty give students the structure to learn and the support to take risks. Milton faculty surround students with opportunities for intellectual and personal growth—in and out of class. Inspired by their teachers and classmates, Milton students explore new areas of interest and maximize their strengths. Located eight miles south of Boston, Milton’s 130-acre campus combines traditional brick and ivy buildings with cutting-edge facilities in science and performing arts. At Milton, it’s cool to be smart. Supported by teachers and classmates, students seek to meet the highest standards in performance, athletics, the arts, leadership, intellectual exploration, and in understanding our world. Trying new things is part of the culture. Students graduate with a clear sense of themselves and their world, and put their skills to work at the most competitive colleges.
