Holton-Arms School, a college-preparatory school for girls grades 3-12, cultivates the unique potential of young women through the education not only of the mind, but of the soul and spirit, providing rigorous and dynamic programs in the traditional academic areas, the arts, and athletics.
Holton-Arms' deep commitment to providing a rigorous college preparatory program is buttressed by a remarkable array of academic, artistic, and athletic choices at every stage of a student's development. Throughout Lower School (grades 3 through 6), Middle School (grades 7 and 8), and Upper School (grades 9 through 12), the Holton curriculum creates scholars who are comfortable with open-ended learning and celebrates the different ways each girl views the world.
We encourage all students to strive for depth and breadth as they move through Holton-Arms. Students should aim to take four years of each major academic subject in the Upper School. They must also round out their programs with courses in Physical Education and the Fine and Performing Arts. The Holton curriculum makes available those courses that will meet the requirements of any college or university.
