Houghton Academy Introduces New Online Learning Platform
HOUGHTON, NY — Houghton Academy, in partnership with K12 Inc., is pleased to announce the launch of its new online learning platform — Houghton Academy Online. Houghton Academy Online will extend, beyond geographic limitations, the traditional Christian college-preparatory education that Houghton Academy has offered for over 137 years.
In addition to a traditional academic course of study, Houghton Academy Online will offer dual enrollment courses through three Christian colleges: Grand Canyon University, Houghton College, and Roberts Wesleyan College. Three Destinations Career Academy pathways — Game Design and Programming, Entrepreneurship, and Medical Assisting— will also be available to students who wish to explore these career fields.
"We're pleased and excited to partner with K12, Inc., the leading provider of online education in the United States, to fully bring the Houghton Academy experience into the 21st century," commented Jonathan Retz, Head of School. "Our vision for Houghton Academy Online is to build a body of young believers who will grow together as a community, challenge themselves with a rigorous and relevant educational experience, and develop a deeper relationship with our Lord and Savior."
"Houghton Academy has a proven track record of preparing our students for post-secondary studies," states Jim Poorman, chair of the Academy board of trustees. "Our purposeful, powerful, and prayerful Christian educators prepare our students to live authentically, learn deeply, lead globally, and love boldly for the glory of God, whether in their future studies or their career paths.”
