Holton-Arms School

    • Rating

Founded in 1901, Holton-Arms School 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. Here, young women of diverse backgrounds can take risks, learn from mistakes, pursue opportunities for leadership, and build lifelong friendships. Holton-Arms is a vibrant community that values consistency and order as well as creativity and freedom.

We seek to develop personal integrity and the sense of responsibility that help young women to make wise and ethical choices. We work to build the values of respect, compassion, and service to others, within the School and in local, national, and global communities.

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.

  1. The teachers at Holton are the most credible educators in the nation. Yes, that is saying a lot,but it’s very true. The curriculum is rigorous and yet inventive allowing girls to show off their intrinsic talents.

    I beg people to get past the single-sex aspect of the school. Research shows that in many cases students at all-girls schools perform better in life and are happier in relationships. They are not being deprived of anything.
