Who We Are

Houston Christian High School was founded in January 1997 by pastors from several major evangelical churches in Houston with a shared vision to establish an interdenominational college preparatory high school dedicated to the highest academic standards, where leadership is cultivated and lives are enriched through spiritual formation.

In August of 1998, HC opened its doors for the first school year at the former Northwest Academy campus with 207 students. Within two years, a forty-five acre tract of land was acquired on the West Sam Houston Parkway where construction began for a move to the new campus in the fall of 2000. Since this time, Houston Christian has continued to grow and expand both campus facilities and programs offered to the greater Houston community. Throughout these years, Houston Christian has won state championship titles and numerous individual championship titles in academic, arts and athletic competition.

Today, Houston Christian High School delivers an exemplary college preparatory program in state-of-the-art facilities. With around 500 students, a dynamic faculty and strong leadership among trustees, Houston Christian High School is becoming the school of choice for families seeking a college preparatory experience in a distinctly Christian environment characterized by rigorous academics and tremendous co-curricular programs.

"Houston Christian was the perfect fit for me to develop as a student and a leader over my four years here. The teachers and students helped foster an environment that promotes fellowship and support. My teachers genuinely cared for me and went the extra mile to help me succeed. My time at Houston Christian has thoroughly prepared me for college while offering the experiences and opportunities I wanted in high school."

"My most memorable experience at HC was being part of the robotics team in its first year. Despite having no prior experience, our team won five awards and advanced to regionals. This experience demonstrated the dedication my fellow students have to their work and the eagerness they have to give their all in everything they do."

"Houston Christian has provided me with so many opportunities to get involved. Through my involvement with Fine Arts over the past four years, I have been able to not only make great memories, but make an amazing group of friends. By being a part of Fine Arts, particularly choir and theatre, I have been able to experience the amazing sense of community HC has to offer."
