The role of the interfaith chaplain at Milton Academy is multi-faceted. She is responsible for planning, organizing, and leading Sunday chapel services for the boarding community. In addition, the interfaith chaplain oversees the Values curriculum in the Affective Education Program and teaches courses on World Religions. The chaplain is also available as a support to students.

The chapel program is interfaith in character; it explores the variety of ways people respond to the mystery of human existence and the question of what may exist beyond the world. The chaplain, visiting speakers or students may use the time to teach about a particular practice in a certain tradition, they may illustrate connections amongst a variety of beliefs, or they may reflect on their own personal spiritual experiences and understanding.
