Beyond the Classroom

At Milton, excellent education extends beyond the classroom.

Students engage in enriching experiences – on the field, in the studio, on stage, in the lab, and in the community.

We empower students to pursue their passions, find their voice, and embrace their boundless potential.

Through programs in art, athletics, music, technology, linguistics, STEM, and service learning, our students explore interests, develop unique capabilities, and find joy and success in all aspects of the Milton experience.

Community & Civic Engagement

A close-knit community and a commitment to civic engagement are hallmarks of the school. We have an active body of current parents, alumni families, community members, and friends who enrich the academic experience of our students with their expertise, learn with us through a variety of programs, share in each other’s lives, and partner with the school and community organizations to contribute to the local and global community.

A Jewish School with a Global Outlook

Milton is a pluralistic Jewish day school by design, where students, families, and faculty mirror the diversity of Jewish practice in the community. A plurality of community voices and opinions, beliefs, backgrounds, and experiences enrich and inspire deeper unity.

We share a commitment to Jewish values and global citizenship.

Chesed (loving-kindness) and tikkun olam (repairing the world) are woven into the fabric of the Milton experience, in the classroom and in our school community. Students apply Design Thinking to address real-world problems, build connections with near and far communities, and engage in civic life.

Families and faculty model Jewish values and meaningful engagement for our students and prepare them to be informed, respectful, and influential citizens.
