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. 





'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."
