Houston Christian High School offers a comprehensive counseling program that strives to challenge and encourage students to grow into young men and women of strong Christian faith, high academic achievement, and moral responsibility.
Houston Christian counselors practice an open door policy and welcome drop-in visits by students or parents, as well as scheduled appointments to discuss emotional, spiritual, social, or academic concerns that arise during the year.
College counseling at Houston Christian is active, intentional, and individualized, beginning in ninth grade and continuing through the end of senior year. Students and parents are provided with the tools to navigate the increasingly competitive and complicated college application process by offering individual and group meetings, visits with college representatives, an annual college tour, workshops for parents and students, and individual advising on all aspects of the college search and application process.
College counseling at Houston Christian aims to help each student find the right college fit by guiding students and families one-on-one through every step of the college admissions process. Our support is proactive and personalized, which enables students to take ownership of the college transition process.
Counselors are familiar faces to the student body at Houston Christian!
Ongoing - Fall and Spring Semesters Fall visits are ideal for students who want to learn more about particular colleges to determine their level of interest and plan a campus visit. Seniors are strongly encouraged to attend which helps with making a college choice. The visits take place during our extended lunch and parents are welcome to attend.
Avoid confusion and false information about the college admission process. Admission representatives from selective universities walk you through a “mock” evaluation of applicants. Do not miss this fun and interactive evening where students and parents serve on a fictitious college admission committee to evaluate four applicants and agree on which student to accept, deny, wait list and award a scholarship. Participants review applicant files consisting of an application, transcript, essay, recommendation letters, resume, and test scores.
