Counseling and College Guidance

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!
