Both the lower and upper school boast a strong commitment to maintaining a diverse student body.
Boarding is offered in the upper school, with half of all students living on campus. A family atmosphere is emphasized, and students have scheduled dinners three times each week with their housemates and house faculty.
Additionally, each upper school student is assigned a faculty adviser.
Academically, Milton Academy defines its curriculum as discussion based, and over 80% of faculty hold advanced degrees. The school promotes a well-rounded education by offering fifteen interscholastic athletic teams, eight student-run publications, and over thirty combined special interest clubs, community service organizations, and cultural groups.
