1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
One of my favorite things about Milton is its proximity to the city. It's great to be able to easily go into Boston instead of being trapped on campus all the time. I also love Milton's structured freshman english program--thanks to it every Milton student is a grammar whiz.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
The creative writing department was the best thing that happened to me at boarding school. I always knew I wanted to become a writer, but I never thought I'd be able to receive a MFA-like education in high school. I've won many regional and national awards over the years, all thanks to Milton's CW department.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
There's nothing I would have done differently. Try your hardest 100% of the time and you'll be rewarded.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
Milton's very liberal when it comes to social and political issues, and both students and faculty are very vocal. Growing up amidst many activists really allowed me to think about my identity and develop thoughtful worldviews.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
Request for Millet, you won't regret it :) #bestdormoncampus
1.) Describe the arts program at your school - what did you like most about it?
The creative writing program at Milton, which counts as an art, is one of the best--if not the best--high school programs in the country. The two expert teachers inspire young writers on a daily basis and train them to become the nation's best.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
We're located near small but lively towns that are within walking distance, and we're also only a thirty minute car ride from Boston. It's more than easy to get away and spend some time off campus.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
The stu (student center) is the social hub of Milton Academy, where students spend most of their time both during the day and after school. Each grade has a section in the stu, so students "upgrade" to better areas of the stu as they get older, which is a fun tradition.

The quality of a summer camp depends very much on the quality and experience of the folks running it. When you select a summer program run by a boarding school, you are getting a program with experienced, well-organized professionals at the helm. More here.
