We want to get to know you!

Your application for admission is your chance to tell your story – your gifts, talents, passions, and aspirations.

We read every application cover to cover – every activity you have participated in, each letter of recommendation you submit. So tell us about your role in church, school, and the community. What do you care about, and what makes you tick?

We’re looking for students who are both scholars and servants – the kind of person who can contribute to and benefit from (in big or small ways) a Christ-centered education! You may apply online in one of two ways: the Houghton Application or the Common Application.

Apply now to Houghton’s residential campus!
