Writing

Studying and developing the craft of writing are the cornerstone of the English program at Holton-Arms. Students write analytical essays and hone their arguments in crisp, clear prose. The faculty encourages our students to express themselves in authentic and powerful ways. The task of convincing a reader to accept a writer’s argument as valid requires imagination and skill. Every word is important. Every word must carry its own weight.

Just as important, at every grade level, students also have the chance to explore the creative side in their English classes, at Scroll meetings, and on their own (especially as they prepare for Coffeehouse).
