Houghton, New York, USA

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 continue to come from far away places. But one similarity stands out above all others. Houghton Academy’s mission remains true to our founder’s vision. How many schools, 125 years old, can make that claim? In this age of moral relativism where so many people and institutions seem driven by whichever way the wind blows each day, Houghton Academy has held fast to solid, time-proven values. The things that should change, have changed. The things that should not change, have not. Thanks for visiting. We would welcome the opportunity for further interaction as you may wish....
