Education for the Hands

When all is said and done, students should not learn merely for the sake of learning. Education should, inevitably, result in action.

A phrase in our mission statement reflects this commitment by stating that the Academy purposes to "teach our students a life of service." Our experience suggests that this is an increasingly counter-cultural message.

We seek to help our students recognize that day-to-day living offers many opportunities to serve and assist others. From the simple act of picking up a piece of paper off the floor to the intense moments spent volunteering in a nursing home, we strive to teach and model a lifestyle that is enthusiastically others-centered.

Houghton Academy is a Christian, college-prep boarding and day school enrolling students in grades 6 - 12.

Head, Heart, Hands

We describe 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. More
