Grades: 7-12 | 142 students
Houghton Academy is a Christian, college-prep boarding and day school enrolling students in grades 6 - 12.
John Nelson, Head of School, describes our program as having a three-fold emphasis on head, heart and hands.
We seek to supply core knowledge, allow knowledge to be informed by faith, and then encourage students to put their knowledge and faith into action.
To that end, we offer more than academic coursework.
We encourage our students to get involved in sports or music or drama or art or publishing as we believe that good education should encompass more than just books and information.
