Jeff Prentice

Athletics Director, Physical Education


  • B.S. Houghton College

In my role as the Athletics Director and Physical Education/Health teacher, I have the unique opportunity to encourage and facilitate growth in the physical, mental, social and emotional development of my students and athletes. Success for me means creating an environment in my classes where each child feels safe, engaged and challenged to learn how to become healthy, fit and an active participant in life time sports. In the area of interscholastic athletics, I expect us to do the best we can with the ability God has given us. We will encourage our athletes to improve in their fundamental skills and their ability to work as a team. Lastly, our coaches, myself, and our athletes will develop and model the fruits of the Spirit as we interact with each other, the referees, and our opponents and do our best to be salt and light in our sphere of influence.

I'm excited to be returning to Houghton after graduating in 1992. I have spent the last 26 years at a Christian school in NJ and I look forward to continuing the tradition of a unique Christian school that Houghton Academy was, is and will continue to be.
