Health & Wellness
A student's health and wellness is key to academic and overall success.
The Holton-Arms Health and Wellness program supports the social, emotional, physical, academic, and developmental growth of every student. Health and Wellness programming gives each student the tools she needs to be resilient and feel empowered to make healthy choices.
Members of the Health and Wellness Committee work to ensure that the program takes a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach, through a variety of programs, events, and facilitators.
In addition, the School provides programs and resources for parents, faculty, and staff fostering the entire Holton community.
Health & Well-Being is an institutional priority for Holton. This priority fosters the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind to care for the physical and mental health of oneself and others, avoid preventable diseases and conditions, manage emotions, maintain positive relationships, and live in a balanced state of body, mind, and spirit.
