From Lower School to Upper School Holton girls investigate the world around them through an integrated global curriculum. While students have the unique opportunity to engage locally in the Nation’s Capital, they also benefit and learn to understand the world from the perspectives exchange students bring with them to campus. The program culminates with the opportunity to travel abroad and participate in one of several immersion programs.
This year we are proud to introduce the Global Issues and Perspectives class, an interdisciplinary, team-taught, semester course designed especially for our eleventh graders as they prepare for their experiences abroad during the summer of 2013. Faculty members Patty Carver, Bob Tupper, and Melissa Brown are excited to be working with this new group of juniors as they embark on their global journey.

Exchanges and Partnerships
Holton works with established organizations to bring students to Holton from abroad. These students become part of the Holton community. Just as these students learn actively about American culture and traditions as part of the Holton family they share their own perspectives, traditions and beliefs. Read more.
Holton has created the opportunity for Upper School students to travel abroad to strengthen their language skills, develop a deeper understanding of and empathy for other cultures, and learn about globally significant issues. Read more about these journeys abroad.
This celebration of cultures from around the world has been hosted annually on the campus by Holton’s Parents Association. The community event kicks off with a school-wide art contest, and the festivities include an evening of delicious international food, live performances, and a special out-of-uniform international dress day. Last year, nearly 40 countries and cultures were represented by Holton students and families.
