Founded in 1901, Holton-Arms School is an independent college preparatory girls school with 665 students in grades 3 through 12, located on a 57-acre campus in Bethesda, MD. With 155 full-time, 40 part-time, and 200 seasonal employees, Holton-Arms is a diverse community of students, faculty, and staff reflecting the population of the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area.
The school’s mission is to cultivate the unique potential of young women through the “education not only of the mind, but of the soul and spirit.” (Jessie Moon Holton - 1866-1951, co-founder.) By developing their intellectual curiosity, self-reliance, tenacity of purpose, and commitment to others, Holton inspires young women to lead lives of positive influence and make a difference in a complex and changing world. Our motto – I will find a way or make one – speaks volumes about a Holton education. Here, girls develop tenacity of purpose, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Here, girls find their voices.
