  • Campus Improvement Announcement

    Houston Christian always prioritizes the safety and well-being of our students, and we're excited to report that we have completed the installation of the new bipolar ionization technology throughout our entire campus! 
     
    Bipolar ionization is a technology that is integrated into the HVAC system. It's an active process that provides continuous disinfection. It uses specialized tubes that take oxygen molecules from the air - in our case, the outside air - and convert them into charged (ionized) atoms that then cluster around microparticles such as airborne pathogens, allergens, and mold. The ionized atoms effectively surround and deactivate harmful substances including the Coronavirus. 
     
    Thank you to our many donors who helped ensure our learning environment stayed as safe and healthy as possible!
