Employer Description
About Holton-Arms School The mission of the Holton-Arms School is to cultivate the unique potential of young women through the "education not only of the mind, but of the soul and spirit." Founded in 1901 by two visionary women, Holton-Arms continues to cultivate a diverse, inclusive and equitable school community, to tend to the health and wellbeing of its members, and to build a global curriculum that responds to the learners in our classrooms and the world around us. In this vibrant community committed to academic excellence, our students are scholars, artists, and athletes who find their voices, take risks, learn from mistakes, pursue opportunities for leadership, and build lifelong friendships. Caring, dedicated faculty and staff inspire our 665 girls and young women in grades 3-12 to realize the School's motto, "I will find a way or make one." We seek applications from candidates of diverse backgrounds, talents, and interests who share a dedication and commitment to helping girls learn, grow and make their way in the world.
