Affording Houston Christian 

Please do not apply for financial aid for the 2017 - 2018 school year until November 1, 2016.

HC is partners with Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to process financial aid applications. FAST provides a user-friendly process to our families applying for aid. 

Financial aid is awarded to attract qualified individuals who could not otherwise afford a private college preparatory education. Only accepted students and/or current students are offered financial aid. 

Awards are based only on demonstrated financial need. Although the school will attempt to meet all demonstrated need, the availability of funding for financial aid will, at times, limit the ability to meet all need.

The school strictly safeguards the confidentiality of all financial information supplied by the family. The school maintains that the primary responsibility for financing education rests with the parents/guardians of the student. Accordingly, in calculating a family's ability to contribute to their child's cost of education, a reasonable amount of income may be imputed for a non-working parent. Financial aid may also be awarded in situations when an incumbent family experiences an unexpected financial hardship such as job loss.

Applicants are notified of the Committee's decision by letter within one week of the decision by the Financial Aid Committee.

The school uses a third party service (FAST, a subsidiary of Independent School Management) to assist in the confidential evaluation of financial resources available for private school tuition. Houston Christian High School adheres to the National Association of Independent School (NAIS) Principles of Good Practice for Financial Aid Administration.

Financial aid applications are due by February 10, 2017.

If you have any questions regarding financial aid, please direct them to  Carol LaCook in the business office at (713) 580-6092.

 

"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."
