Affording Houston Christian 

Please do not apply for financial aid for the 2017 - 2018 school year until November 1, 2016.

HC is partners with Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to process financial aid applications. FAST provides a user-friendly process to our families applying for aid. 

Financial aid is awarded to attract qualified individuals who could not otherwise afford a private college preparatory education. Only accepted students and/or current students are offered financial aid. 

Awards are based only on demonstrated financial need. Although the school will attempt to meet all demonstrated need, the availability of funding for financial aid will, at times, limit the ability to meet all need.

The school strictly safeguards the confidentiality of all financial information supplied by the family. The school maintains that the primary responsibility for financing education rests with the parents/guardians of the student. Accordingly, in calculating a family's ability to contribute to their child's cost of education, a reasonable amount of income may be imputed for a non-working parent. Financial aid may also be awarded in situations when an incumbent family experiences an unexpected financial hardship such as job loss.

Applicants are notified of the Committee's decision by letter within one week of the decision by the Financial Aid Committee.

The school uses a third party service (FAST, a subsidiary of Independent School Management) to assist in the confidential evaluation of financial resources available for private school tuition. Houston Christian High School adheres to the National Association of Independent School (NAIS) Principles of Good Practice for Financial Aid Administration.

Financial aid applications are due by February 10, 2017.

If you are unable to apply online, please contact the business office at (713) 580-6092 for assistance.  

If you have any questions regarding financial aid, please direct them to  Carol LaCook in the business office at (713) 580-6092.

 

'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."

"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."
