We are the Milken Wildcats!

Our athletics program enables students to compete and perform at a high level as they deepen their connection to Milken’s core values. In conjunction with the California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section (CIF-SS), we provide young athletes an opportunity to showcase their talent and hard work while embodying the ideals of ethical action and good sportsmanship.

Participation on a Milken athletic team is considered a privilege and carries certain responsibilities – both on and off the field. Athletes and their families are an integral part of building our community.

At Milken, student-athletes enjoy the complete high school sporting experience. We have won multiple league championships and reached CIF-SS championship games in a variety of sports. Many of our student-athletes have gone on to compete at the collegiate level.
