Welcome to Houghton Academy!

We look forward to speaking with you, or better yet, having you visit us here in our quiet corner of the world. Houghton Academy has a rich tradition of providing our students with an exceptional college-preparatory education centered on the Bible, inspired by God, which serves as the ultimate authority for our faith and our lives.

You will find a talented, highly dedicated faculty and staff committed to sharing Christ’s love and helping each child explore and develop their interests, gifts, and passions. At Houghton Academy, your kids will be loved and cared for as if they are our own.

We boast a diverse student body with a unique blend of local students and full-time boarding students from across the United States and from around the world. Our decades of experience providing a college preparatory education has equipped our students to be placed in some of the finest colleges and universities in the United States.

Our commitment to our students will ensure your child is provided a rigorous and engaging educational experience grounded in God’s Word. I invite you to speak with us about how Houghton Academy may meet your educational needs. Please contact us if we can be of any support to you and we are excited to welcome you to our exceptional school.

In Christ,

Jonathan R. Retz
Head of School, Houghton Academy
