Houghton Academy is filled with stories of students finding excellence within them. Some have come with aspirations on the athletic fields and found champions. Some students have come with hopes to see fine arts excellence and found standing ovations. But everyone has come looking for an excellent university prep experience and found that–and more.

At Houghton Academy, we seek faculty and staff we call "Living Curriculum Educators (LCEs)." Our priority is finding the right people and sorting out their best roles. This philosophy is based on the theme of Psalm 139. We are "fearfully and wonderfully made" unique creations of God with individual strengths and passions. We believe synergistic ministry impact is predictable when the right fit is found, and everyone is serving in their zone of giftedness. So, what are the qualities and characteristics of a Living Curriculum Educator?
