At the heart of a good Christian school is a Christian philosophy of education.

At the heart of a Christian philosophy of education is a concept called integration. To integrate is to incorporate parts into a whole; the parts that combine into a whole at Houghton Academy are faith and learning. In every class in every subject, in curricular and extra-curricular activities, in the school and in the dorm, the adults are committed to helping students view the world through "Christian-colored glasses." All education originates from and in turn propagates some view of the world; Academy faculty and staff are intentional in their efforts to inculcate our students with an understanding of the world that is consistent with Scripture.


Enrolling both day students and boarding students, Houghton Academy offers a diverse student body. Each year, students arrive here from around the world, bring with them a rich cultural mosaic unavailable anywhere else in Allegany County.
