When the Academy was founded, Willard Houghton's stated intention was that Houghton Academy be affordable. The world's economy has changed considerably since 1883, but in the realm of secondary boarding and day schools, Houghton Academy's price point remains competitive in relation to other exceptional schools.

While we recognize that "affordable" is a relative term, we believe that through financial aid and our mission-minded approach to cost, we are able to offer high-quality education and exceptional experience at a modest price.



Houghton Academy offers both merit-based scholarships and need-based financial aid. 


Applicants interested in financial aid should contact the Admissions Office at
