College Placement

Houghton Academy has a guidance office and staff who are dedicated to assisting students in the college placement process.

College representatives visit regularly to recruit college-bound students. The guidance program incorporates all high school grade levels, but focuses especially on juniors and seniors.

A formal SAT preparation course is taught during Winterim. Computer-based SAT preparation courses are available to all students. As formal practice for the SAT, the Preliminary SAT (PSAT) is offered each year to the sophomore and junior classes. A TOEFL preparation course is required for all students with low English proficiency.

College attendance is the norm for Academy graduates. Approximately 94% of each year's graduating class attend college in the fall immediately after high school.
