Distinguished Scholars Program
The Houston Christian (HC) Distinguished Scholars Program (DSP) offers gifted students the opportunity to study in an interdisciplinary environment comprised of a rigorous thought and research.
DSP sparks innovative and fresh thinking as Scholars analyze and develop arguments on a variety of topics pertinent to the world today. From this thought process, the Distinguished Scholar develops skills to understand and produce an empirical product on a topic of the Scholar’s choosing prior to their graduation.

Scholars improve their public speaking and communication skills through the use of the most advanced technological aids as discover new information and challenge entrenched ideas.Through academic study and guidance, Distinguished Scholars:

DSP is an avenue for Scholars to gain “Radical Amazement” where they discover, develop, and strengthen the gifts, which God has given them as they engage in critical thinking, research, and public speaking skills. Because of the nature of this distinctive program, an additional investment is required.
