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

At Houghton Academy, we look for people we call "Living Curriculum Educators (LCE's)." Our priority is finding the right people and then 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 that when our right fit is found and we are in our zone of giftedness, synergistic ministry impact is predictable. So, what are the qualities and characteristics of a Living Curriculum Educator?
