# of Openings:


The mission of the Holton-Arms School is to cultivate the unique potential of young women through the "education not only of the mind but of the soul and spirit." Founded in 1901 by two visionary women, Holton-Arms continues to cultivate a diverse, inclusive, and equitable school community, to tend to the health and wellbeing of its members, and to build a global curriculum that responds to the learners in our classrooms and the world. In this vibrant community committed to academic excellence, our students are scholars, artists, and athletes who find their voices, take risks, learn from mistakes, pursue opportunities for leadership, and build lifelong friendships. Caring, dedicated faculty and staff inspire our six hundred fifty-seven girls and young women in grades 3-12 to realize the School's motto, "I will find a way or make one." We seek applications from candidates of diverse backgrounds, talents, and interests who share a desire, dedication and commitment to helping girls learn, grow, and make their way in the world.

Holton-Arms Teaching Fellowship

The Holton-Arms Teaching Fellowship program provides participants with a two-year experience where they will develop skills and competencies needed to be successful educators in today's global and evolving world. Fellows learn to be teachers who provide an education for students grounded in our Learn Well, Live Well, Lead Well Philosophy, which is based on creating a strong sense of diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, global competence, and wellbeing. They participate actively in all aspects of school life at Holton-Arms including academics, advising, and co-curricular programs. The fellowship provides an individualized structure that allows for personalized programming as they learn to be educators in the independent school setting based on their passions and interests. Fellows have the opportunity to explore teaching at all age levels, as well as to gain experience beyond the classroom (this may include advisory, athletics, arts, admissions, advancement/communications, etc.). They also connect more deeply with a specific department and/or division based on their experience, passions, and professional goals. Fellows are mentored by the program coordinators and host teachers throughout the program to support their growth and progress.

By the end of the program, Fellows will have a digital teaching portfolio which highlights their growth and skills mastered over the course of two years. Following completion of the fellowship, they will have the opportunity to apply for jobs within Holton-Arms or at other independent schools. During that application process, we will provide training on resume building and interviewing.

Holton-Arms is eager to consider applications from groups traditionally underrepresented in independent school communities. We are looking for a diverse mix of talented people who want to join us as student centered educators and role models who are eager to collaborate, seek and respond to feedback, commit to reflexive practices and growth, and bring joy and good humor to our classrooms, fields, stages, and offices. We pride ourselves on being a warm, welcoming, and inclusive community.

Holton-Arms seeks candidates with the following qualifications who are intending to begin a professional career in education:

  • A strong desire and interest in working with children in an educational setting
  • No more than 1 year of traditional teaching experience
  • A desire to collaborate with community members including colleagues, administration, students, and families.
  • A willingness to engage in the variety of opportunities that an independent school offers
  • A bachelor's degree (does not need to be in education)


    • Demonstrates sensitivity, knowledge, and understanding of the diverse backgrounds of community members with a continuous focus on healthy relationship building.
    • Commitment to a lifetime of learning, personal and professional integrity, and the capacity to serve as a model of openness, generosity, and acceptance.

      In order to be considered for this position, we ask candidates to submit a resume and the names of three references. Instead of a cover letter, please answer the following question in a response of up to 500 words or a 2-minute video: Based on your values about community, what will you bring to Holton-Arms to make us stronger?

      Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Mission Statement

      • Discovering, developing, and valuing our full authentic selves.
      • Deepening awareness of personal and systemic biases and being accountable for the impact of our words and actions.
      • Developing an understanding of the historical origins and perpetuation of systems of power and privilege.
      • Engaging in open and brave conversations that promote growth, understanding, connection, and agency.
      • Embracing every individual as essential to the community.
