Center for the Advancement of STEM
The Holton-Arms Center for the Advancement of STEM is an integrated, grade 3-12 program that capitalizes on Holton faculty, facilities, and strategic partnerships to educate girls to be fluent, not just literate, in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. Holton will continue our rich history of inspiring and preparing girls to find a way or make one in STEM related fields while also leading a new era of innovation in teaching and learning.

Holton-Arms has a long history of partnering with organizations in greater Washington, D.C. to enrich the education of our students. In fact in our very first year as a school, Mrs. Holton developed a partnership with the Naval Observatory to use their facilities and equipment for Holton girls to explore the universe. From 1901 to today, Holton continues to engage locally to deepen the educational experience of each student. Our Science Research Program has partnered with Georgetown University, Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences, and University of Maryland for over ten years and now we are proud to announce a new strategic collaboration with George Washington University beginning the spring of 2014. The benefits of this new relationship with GW includes placement for research students and use of GW STEM facilities by Holton students and faculty.
