Prospective Parents

We understand that as a prospective Houghton Academy parent, you may have some questions.

We hope that these pages will help answer those questions. If you cannot find the answer here, please feel free to contact us at any time. We look forward to hearing from you and to meeting you and your child.

Some common questions refer to academics at Houghton Academy, student life, financial aid, and the expense of a Houghton Academy education.

Houghton Academy (and the broader Houghton, NY community) is a unique place. More than an institution, Houghton Academy is a caring supportive school in which your child will be encouraged to grow, think, learn and explore all of his or her talents. Just as a supportive environment is a hallmark of a Houghton Academy education, so too is a rigorous and challenging academic program. Houghton Academy students work hard. The community in which they are immersed values integrity, honesty, willingness to work and academic excellence.

Houghton Academy students bring to our community a variety of gifts, interests, and abilities. As presented in the Parable of the Good Steward (Matthew 25), we seek to engender in each student a desire to find ways to develop and use their God-given abilities for the advancement of His Kingdom.

We invite you and your child to continue to explore these pages and, more importantly, come visit Houghton Academy so that we may meet you and you may meet our school. We look forward to seeing you.

Church

Church attendance is a normal part of boarding student life. Most boarding students and many local students worship at the Houghton Wesleyan Church which is just a short walk from campus. More
