Boarding Students

A boarding school provides its students with opportunities for growth and independence in a structured environment.

Students from across America and around the world have attended Houghton Academy and have learned life skills that provide the foundation for successful college careers and beyond.

Houghton Academy seeks young people capable of studying in a rigorous, college-preparatory environment. All students must be willing to live and work in a Christian atmosphere, although students of other faiths are welcomed. Admission is based on completion of the application, references, and prior satisfactory performance in school (transcripts are required).

Approximately 70% of applications submitted for grades 9-12 are granted admission.

Boarding students must be ninth grade level or higher OR aged 14 or older to live in one of our dorms. Students are encouraged to enroll prior to their senior year as meeting all the New York State graduation requirements often proves difficult in just one year. Houghton Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, creed, or national origin in the administration of its educational policies, financial aid program, athletic or other school administered programs.

If you would like more information, please call the school office, or you may complete theĀ Information Request Form and submit your request electronically. We look forward to hearing from you!
