Education for the Heart

Knowledge for its own sake is empty. To be fully educated is to understand and embrace a higher purpose in life, a purpose that is clearly defined by God’s Word.

Houghton Academy seeks not only to transfer knowledge and skills, we seek to supply knowledge and skills that are informed, directed and constrained by Truth.

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 
–II Corinthians 10:3-5

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
