About Us


Houston Christian High School is committed to equipping students to become the leaders of the next generation by providing empowering, dynamic education that aligns academics, arts, athletics, and spiritual formation.

Houston Christian, an independent, nonprofit day school, was founded in 1997 by a group of evangelical ministers with a shared vision to provide rigorous, Christ-centered education to Houston families. Now, 20 years later, it serves nearly 500 high school students, and its alumni rank among some of the most successful in the nation, including United States Service Academy officers, state judges, CEOs, and at least one Broadway actress.

Houston Christian’s collegiate-style campus is built on 45 beautiful acres off of West Sam Houston Parkway North and serves coed students in ninth through twelfth grades. Our students travel from 72 zip codes throughout the Greater Houston Area for the rigorous academics and broad array of extracurricular activities, many of which take place in the state-of-the-art Harrell Strength and Conditioning Center and Brown Family Dance Studio. Houston Christian also houses the prestigious George and Barbara Bush Center for Scholars and Leaders, the only high school leadership program in the nation with permission to use the presidential seal.

Houston Christian is accredited by The Independent Schools Association of the Southwest (ISAS) http://www.isasw.org  and with nearly 70 percent of its faculty awarded advanced degrees, Houston Christian students receive the wrap-around support needed to discover and fulfill the unique calling on their lives.

'I had a group I ate lunch with called the "Lunch Bunch," which met in Mr. Lister's classroom. Mr. Lister liked to call us "the vultures." Mr. Lister was always available after school for discussion and has been a source of wisdom and advice in my important decisions and biblical questions. He constantly encouraged me to read the Word daily and research my questions to ensure I had the right conclusion and thought process. I learned the value of questioning and striving to be a lifelong learner. I hope to carry the wisdom of Mr. Lister into college and the years after."

"My Houston Christian education has given me so many opportunities far beyond what I could have ever thought or dreamed. The Fine Arts department allowed me to excel not only as a performer, but as a whole person. What stand out to me in my time at HC are the numerous teachers and peers I have met who truly care about me and the individual I am becoming inside and out of the classroom."

Remy Garfield



"My favorite aspect of HC was the opportunity to be so involved my senior year. I was the co-captain of the cheerleading squad, Student Council public relations officer, a Student Ambassador, a D-group leader, member of the Passport to Lead program, and a member of the Diversity Club. HC has taught me to always strive for what I want and never stop trying."
