Tuition & Financial Aid

Lasting Value

A Holton-Arms education prepares young women for a lifetime of personal and professional success by:

  • Providing the tools and insights they need for self-awareness and emotional intelligence.
  • Creating opportunities to grow from and with people from diverse backgrounds—learning empathy, teamwork, and problem solving.
  • Connecting students to the larger world through classroom and experiential learning that is rooted in real-world applications and linked to global challenges.
  • As a result, Holton alumnae are self-confident, socially adept, and globally fluent—a combination of attributes that sets the stage for a lifetime of wellness and success.

Need-Based Aid

Our financial aid grants are based on a family’s demonstrated need.

There is no specific income level at which families do or don’t qualify. Rather, financial need is determined by considering a range of factors that includes income, assets, liabilities, number of children in tuition schools, and age of parents. Students who qualify for aid also receive assistance with textbooks, technology, transportation, and extended-day care at the same percentage as their tuition aid.


Affording a Holton Education

Students of talent and promise come from a broad range of economic circumstances.

Different experiences and perspectives shape and define Holton’s dynamic learning environment. Our commitment to financial aid is rooted in the belief that a school community that welcomes a wide spectrum of families enhances the educational experience of all students. We encourage parents who are concerned about being able to pay the full cost to apply for financial aid.
