Founded by six local churches of different denominations, Houston Christian High School is centered around the basic tenets of Christianity.
Houston Christian is founded under the providence of God and with the conviction that there is a need for a school in this community that will train the minds, develop moral character, and enrich the spiritual lives of all those who may come within its sphere of influence. Because of this, biblical principles are woven throughout all classes and extracurriculars, allowing students, staff, and visitors to see Christ in every aspect of life.
Houston Christian students are not required to be of the Christian faith; however, we focus on biblical literacy, discipleship, and service in order to develop servant leaders. This servant leadership is seen displayed all over campus. In spiritual life, students have the opportunity to be worship leaders, elected student chaplains, and discipleship group leaders.
Houston Christian desires to see all its students thrive in every aspect of life. We hope you will join us in transforming the world one student at a time!
Weekly Chapel Program
Weekly chapels allow students, faculty, and staff time to focus on and explore ways to live out the Christian faith. Chaplains organize chapel services by coordinating praise bands and inviting speakers of all denominations to speak to the student body. While chapel messages and lessons directly apply to living a Christian life, students can apply these messages to positively impact how they live and interact with others regardless of their faith.
Houston Christian has developed a life-calling curriculum throughout all grades in the Bible department and spiritual life ministries that equip young people with a deeper understanding of God’s purpose for their lives. Houston Christian strives to teach students how to interpret and apply the Bible through various hands-on, dynamic, interactive, and scholarly approaches. Through four required courses, one each year, students are introduced to the Old and New Testaments and principles of Christian leadership. Students also take a Christian perspectives class that explores a variety of logical, philosophical, and theological perspectives, comparing each to a biblical Christian worldview.
Service & Mission
Houston Christian encourages students to act out their faith through service. Through partnerships with local and international service organizations, Spring Spirit and Hope International, our students engage with their communities through volunteering and an annual Missions Emphasis Week.
Community groups provide a small group for students to connect to each other and for faculty to connect with students. They provide a structure for community and connection. Community groups, consisting of 10-12 students, are led by a member of the HC faculty/staff and serve to foster mentoring and an avenue for small group discussion on the chapel message and special assemblies. Discipleship groups (D-Groups) meet regularly to give underclassmen an opportunity to have upperclassmen mentor them in their faith journey. Students meet and fellowship through Bible study, group events, worship, and fun activities during the school year.
