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 mission of the Holton-Arms School is to cultivate the unique potential of young women. 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 the larger community. 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. - Holton
