Just seven miles from campus, Boston’s resources profoundly affect how we at Milton can think about educating young people. The many options within minutes of our traditional, scenic campus mean that Boston’s educational and cultural assets have become part of the Milton experience. Not only do we connect with many universities and artistic institutions, but also with the writers, historians, scientists, artists, and musicians who choose to live in this dynamic city. Our urban backyard also allows us to educate ourselves about political and social questions in realistic contexts. The Boston-Milton proximity enlarges what we can offer students every day.

Urban-infused Academics

Faculty at Milton link learning with the distinguished scholars, artists and professionals who live and work in Boston, Cambridge and beyond. Each year, about 40 distinguished guests come to campus. Their experience, accomplishments and willingness to engage with our students not only enliven the subject matter, but also elevate the importance of academic work, and model long-term commitment to excellence.

From Milton to Boston

Having access to Boston’s universities, institutions and other resources is a particular advantage. For example, students in AP American & Comparative Government attend programs at Harvard’s Kennedy Institute of Politics, the Kennedy Library and the Ford Hall Forum at Faneuil Hall this year. Delegations attended the Harvard Model Congress, the Harvard Model UN and a similar program at Tufts University. Calculus students visit MIT. laboratories, while Ancient Civilizations classes explored pieces at the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA). This History of Art class also visits the MFA as well as Harvard’s Fogg Art Museum and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Geology students extend their class work to the Charles River and the Blue Hills Reservation. Members of the Astronomy class experience the Planetarium at the Museum of Science. With Tufts, MIT., Harvard, Boston College, Northeastern, Wellesley and Boston University in Milton’s backyard, our students have many opportunities to participate in the academic and cultural environment of “America’s college town.”
