Houghton Academy

9790 Thayer Street
Houghton, New York, USA Show Phone Number   

Houghton Academy is a Christian, college-prep boarding and day school enrolling students in grades 6 - 12. Houghton Academy was founded in 1883, a long time before computers and websites. What would these pages look like if this was the mid-eighteen ninety’s? Certainly the dress code was a bit different. Science lab equipment was less developed. Students arrived at school via horse and buggy. Classrooms lacked overheads and double-pane windows. The differences would be many and obvious. As I think of the differences, I am equally conscious of what would be the same. Buildings are still constructed with bricks. Students...

Milton Academy

170 Centre Street
Milton, Massachusetts, USA

Milton's Bicentennial in 1998 marked the Academy's charter, given in 1798 under the Massachusetts land-grant policy. It bequeathed to the school a responsibility to "open the way for all the people to a higher order of education than the common schools can supply" (Richard Hale, Milton Academy, 1948). Milton was established as a coeducational day school, and preparation for college was the primary goal of the school's program. Just after the school's centennial, reacting to a marked increase in the interest of separate education for young women, the Academy was divided into separate schools. For many years, the Milton Academy...

Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School

That year, the Reverend Joel Wade, a Presbyterian educational missionary, arrived in the community of Sautee to take over the grammar school and put it on solid footing.
