College Preparatory School for Girls Grades 3-12

Parent Partnership Program

Empowering young women to develop the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind necessary to thrive in a complex and changing world is a collaborative endeavor. Strong partnerships between school and home are integral to creating a diverse, inclusive, and equitable learning community that cultivates health and wellbeing for all its members. You, after all, are your daughter’s most impactful teachers! We invite you to join us this year as we move forward in building community, learning together, and increasing our capacity to “cultivate the unique potential of young women through the education not only of the mind, but the soul, and spirit”.

Our Parent Partnership Program is designed for our entire parent/guardian community and each event is intentional in its connection to Holton’s mission. Please note, in some cases, parent events are designed and scheduled for parents/guardians of specific grades or divisions. We appreciate and value your participation and look forward to these opportunities to grow together.
