The HC Difference

List of 4 items.

  • Block Schedule

    Houston Christian High School uses a A/B Day block schedule, with classes typically meeting for 80 minutes. With four classes meeting each day, students are able to explore topics more deeply than shorter class periods allow. For adolescents, their brains like new ideas and activities but completely switching from one subject and teacher to another can be exhausting and it takes time to think deeply about a topic. 

    In this block setting, a student has four different teachers and subjects to explore on a given day. It allows students time to get help between class meetings from a teacher or peer to clarify learning or receive additional help on the off day for a class. For Houston Christian students, we also flip the blocks so they meet at different times of the day. Students experience a class on Monday first thing in the morning and then a flip day allows them to experience it in the afternoon on Wednesday. This provides teachers different time periods to engage students and anyone with a teenager knows they engage differently at different times of the day. 

    Lastly, the Houston Christian schedule gives students a taste of what will be expected of them at the university level and supports their development of time management skills.  Houston Christian seeks to prepare students for more than academic success with the learning environment they create at the high school level.
