Milken understands that every child possesses unique gifts that are best nurtured in a supportive community. Through our curriculum of general and Jewish studies, we strive to develop confidence, critical thinking, and creativity. In doing so, we inspire passion, identity, and commitment as enduring foundations for balanced and purposeful living. Our dedication to cultivating students with sharp minds, generous hearts, and kind souls makes our school a vibrant place for learning.
Milken is home to a broad spectrum of students and families from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and levels of observance. Our pluralistic community encourages intellectual, ethical, and spiritual questioning.
Attending Milken prepares students to contribute to the broader world well beyond their high school graduation. We seek to connect the power of learning with ethical responsibility and spiritual purpose. Our students are taught the value of active participation in both their own community and in the larger global context. They learn to balance Hillel's teaching of "If I am not for myself, who will be for me?" with "If I am only for myself, what am I?" Through service learning at the local, national, and international levels, Milken students learn that their efforts can make a profound difference in the lives of others.
