Departments and Courses

Scholarship begins in the classroom. Our core curriculum philosophy requires students to complete four years of study in Englishhistory, religionmath and science. Teachers often collaborate to encourage an exploration of subjects from a variety of perspectives through an interdisciplinary learning program. Block scheduling accommodates different learning styles and provides a collegiate atmosphere with variety in the weekly calendar.

Inspiring leadership is at the core of HC academics, athletics, and the arts. We believe each student can lead for the greater good, can influence people into action for a greater cause and can transform their family, community and culture for Christ. Whether our students find success as a servant leader, a chosen leader or a gifted leader—the outcome remains the same—an attitude of valuing others, the capacity for hard work, persistence in the face of discouragement, a public sense of the ability to affect the lives of others and a concern and commitment to personal excellence.


 

'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."
