Over 600 students have participated in global education trips.


I find it vital to go on a Junior Journey because it provides invaluable experience in a new culture and lifestyle, forces one to step outside of their comfort zone, and demonstrates how in this world of over 7 billion people we are all interconnected. "

All Education is Global

Learn Well: Across divisions and disciplines, students are exposed to a dynamic curriculum that increases their knowledge and understanding of world history and geography, environmental challenges and sustainable practices, global political and economic systems, and human rights principles. 

Live Well: Through their educational journey at Holton, students hone their creative and critical thinking skills through researching and analyzing global issues, and working collaboratively to problem-solve. They improve their communication skills through active listening and intercultural dialogue, and sharpen their language proficiency. 

Lead Well: Holton students graduate with a shared responsibility for people, the planet, and peace, an eager willingness to participate in local, national, and global civic life, and the ability to interact with diverse cultures with empathy and open-mindedness.

Global Scholars Honors Designation

The Global Scholars Honors Designation is for students with a special interest in global issues and international affairs. To earn the designation, students complete academic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular coursework while in Upper School. This coursework culminates in a Senior Project focused on one or more of the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals. Last year 16 seniors graduated with this honor fulfilling projects in the areas of conservation, health, education, gender equality, and poverty. Students who fulfill the requirements will have this designation noted on their transcripts and will be recognized at Commencement.

Hosting an International Student

Embracing the global community at Holton, we recognize the immense value of hosting international students. By opening our doors to students from around the world, we cultivate an enriching cultural exchange that extends beyond the classroom. We believe that exposure to diverse perspectives prepares our students to thrive in an interconnected world, promoting the development of cross-cultural understanding, empathy, and a global perspective. Year after year, students, faculty, and parents alike form lasting relationships with our partner schools in Spain (Colegio Mirabal) and Peru (San Silvestre).
