We look forward to receiving your application for admission to Houston Christian High School. Because we want to be sensitive to the extreme circumstances surrounding Hurricane Harvey, we have chosen to extend our application deadline to January 5, 2018. Please don't hesitate to contact us if we can answer questions or help you with the admissions process in any way.
All application supporting documents must be submitted online through the OnBoard Portal by February 1, 2017. Once you have begun your application, a checklist will be generated for you to ensure proper document submission. This checklist includes the following necessary items for application to HC:
-3 years of report cards for incoming 9th graders, Transfer Students (10th, 11th, and 12th graders), must submit a transcript (report cards may be requested)
-Completed recommendation form from current Math and English teacher
-ISEE test results sent from ERB
-Interview (student and at least one parent) (International student interview may be completed via Skype)
-Additional documentation will be required should a student apply for The Program for College Readiness and or The Distinguished Scholars Program
Houston Christian is family and as such, we want to get to know you through a student and family interview. Once you apply, make sure you schedule a time to visit with a member of our office. This is done through your online portal.
Please note, if an applicant is also applying for admission into either the Program for College Readiness (PCR) or Distinguished Scholars (DSP), please call our office to arrange the interview.
All applications are due January 5, 2018. Any applications received after January 5 will be considered after the first round of acceptances. Please note, although the initial deadline to apply is January 5, Houston Christian will continue to accept applications and students until all spaces are filled. We encourage you to begin the application process as soon as possible. As classes fill, we will update this page.
Once an applicant's file is complete, it is reviewed by members of the Admissions Review Committee (ARC). Decision letters, including contracts for general enrollment and special program contracts (DSP or PCR), as well as financial aid notification letters, if awarded, will be mailed on Friday, March 10.
The HAIS common reply date for the 2018-2019 school year will be April 11, 2018.
The ISEE (Independent School Entrance Examination) is a nationally normed, standardized test held at sites throughout the Houston area at an additional cost. Please register online. Parents are responsible for all registration and payment directly through the ISEE organization. Houston Christian will host the ISEE January 6 & January 27. Testing at Houston Christian does not provide an advantage to the applicant with regards to an admission decision.
ISEE test results from the January 27 testing date at Houston Christian will be accepted as results are typically reported within 48 hours of testing. To inquire about testing opportunities after February 2, please call the Admissions Office at (713) 580-6020.
For more information, call ISEE at (800) 446-0320. Registration is online; the HC test site code is 447561.
