From Holton-Arms School

Founded in 1901, Holton-Arms is a college-preparatory school for girls grades 3-12 dedicated to the “education not only of the mind, but of the soul and spirit.”

The School provides rigorous and dynamic programs in the traditional academic areas, the fine and performing arts, and athletics. At Holton, you’ll come to truly know your SELF so that you can best contribute to your COMMUNITY and make a vital impact on the WORLD. While this philosophy is woven throughout our curriculum it is most apparent in our Learn Well, Live Well, Lead Well Seminar (“Seminar”), a comprehensive 3-12 integrated, interdisciplinary curriculum that directly addresses the school-wide goals and competencies that embrace Holton’s institutional priorities of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Health and Wellbeing, and Global Education.

We believe that with intellectual curiosity, self-reliance, tenacity of purpose, and commitment to others, Holton women will make a difference in a complex and changing world.
