A Brief History
Over a century ago Wesleyan Methodist evangelist Willard J. Houghton traveled the Genesee valley by horse and buggy, tirelessly inviting children to Sunday school. In 1882 his conversations with area church leaders turned a love for young people into a vision for a school--a school that would serve as a "moral lighthouse" for a "dark world."
