Accepted Students

Welcome to your new journey as an HC Mustang!

2022-2023 New Student Information

List of 21 items.

  • Food Service

    Houston Christian High School’s Food Service Department is pleased to provide you with a convenient and secure online payment service called mySchoolBucks. This website allows you to deposit money directly into your child’s school meal account and view balance/purchase information for the past ninety days. By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the dining room, we find that the lunch lines move along much faster, which gives your child more time to eat and be with friends. The following information will assist you in creating an account, loading it with funds, adding additional students, and other common questions.

    *Please note, that your student's ID number can be found in your online portal (where you applied for enrollment).

    Please click here for more information and to set up your student's food service account.
