Where Ideas Become Change

Houston Christian is home to the George and Barbara Bush Center for Scholars and Leaders (BCSL) in honor of the 41st President, George Bush, and former first lady, Barbara Bush. Dedicated on April 16, 2012, BCSL is the only high school leadership center bearing the name and integrating the leadership legacies of a United States President. 

BCSL offers a 90-year depth of knowledge for study where students at any grade-level will have historic material at their fingertips. Visitors experience many facets of President Bush’s time in the White House including key leadership and legislative moments from the presidency, compassionate policy initiatives enacted during his Administration, and his dream for students to be tomorrow's leaders.

Houston Christian proudly works with other agencies such as the Presidential Library, National Archives, Bush School of Government at Texas A&M, The Points of Light Institute, and the Barbara Bush Center for Family Literacy. Artifacts, documents, and interactive components capture the key decisions and events of the Presidency of George Bush.

Programs of Distinction 

Our goal for every student at Houston Christian is to successfully navigate, manage and blend the rigors and challenges of academics with the many co-curricular enrichment opportunities available. 

As part of our mission, we believe that leadership and scholarship must be modeled and developed in its students. As the nation’s only high school combining these dimensions within a Presidential Center, Houston Christian will provide resources for students to study and celebrate the leadership of George and Barbara Bush. 





"My most memorable moment at HC was most definitely when we beat East Bernard in football my senior year. That was the moment I experienced the most unity with the team and was the most proud to be a part of the Mustang family. One of the greatest traits I have attained at HC is the fearless courage to step out and be different from the rest of the world. This is key, because I know that people will always look at me differently because of my faith and now, I have the courage to tell them why I love Christ."

"Houston Christian has given me a community where I  grew and reached my utmost potential. I have grown in my faith, confidence, leadership and character. There is no better place that I can say that can do all of these things."

Courtney King




"When I look back on my time at HC, I can't decide on a specific memory because there are too many. I am so thankful for all my teachers and friends. Some of my greatest memories are in Mr. Lister's classroom. Not only was it where I learned Geometry, but it also became my second home and where I would eat lunch every day with my friends."
