Houston Christian High School empowers students to promote positive change in their communities. The Houston Christian Social Sciences Department takes pride in challenging our students to become servant leaders, civic minded citizens, and lifelong learners.
Through an array of courses covering global issues, American and world history, US government, economics, and psychology, students gain critical knowledge of the social sciences, all within the context of a spiritual worldview. Teachers in the Social Sciences Department craft engaging lessons which incorporate research-based strategies such as Socratic seminar, debate, evaluation, and role play. The faculty also emphasizes writing, close reading, and performance-based assessment.
The Social Sciences Department provides students with several opportunities for extracurricular involvement and community service including Model United Nations Club, Diversity Club, National Honor Society, and Student Council.
