The application for the 2020-2021 school year will be available August 26, 2019 to December 16, 2019.  Any applications received after December 16 will be considered after the first round of acceptances. Please note, although the initial deadline to apply is December 16, Houston Christian will continue to accept applications and students until all spaces are filled. We encourage you to begin the application process as soon as possible. As classes fill, we will update this page.

All application supporting documents must be submitted online through the OnBoard Portal by February 1, 2020 if your application was submitted by December 16, 2019. 

Those applications submitted after December 16, please submit all supporting documentation as collected. 

Once you have begun your application, a checklist will be generated for you to ensure proper document submission.  
Additional documentation will be required should a student apply for The Program for College Readiness.

Houston Christian is family and as such, we want to get to know you through a student and family interview. Once you apply, make sure you schedule a time to visit with a member of our office. This may be done by contacting the Admissions office. Transfer students should have all documents submitted before scheduling the interview.

Once an applicant's file is complete, it is reviewed by members of the Admissions Review Committee (ARC).  Decision letters, including contracts for general enrollment and special program contracts (DSP or PCR), as well as financial aid notification letters, if awarded, will be available via the online portal on Friday, March 13.  

The HAIS common reply date for the 2020-2021 school year will be April 3, 2020

ISEE Testing

Testing at Houston Christian does not provide an advantage to the applicant with regards to an admission decision.

ISEE test results from the January 25 testing date at Houston Christian will be accepted as results are typically reported within 48 hours of testing.  To inquire about testing opportunities after February 2, please call the Admissions Office at (713) 580-6020.
