Program for College Readiness

Questions? Please contact HC Admissions

The Program for College Readiness is a specialized program exclusive to Houston Christian High School designed to vigorously support students with mild to moderate diagnosed Learning Disabilities. Each PCR student receives an individualized education plan and has a learning "strategies" class built in to their schedules. PCR students also receive Testing Center privileges for teacher-monitored extended testing time, as needed. The goal of the Program for College Readiness is to make a college preparatory education available to LD students by helping them take charge of their learning, thinking and communication styles. Our goal is for our small LD population to be able to use self-advocacy and other acquired academic skills to propel them in high school, college and beyond.


Learning specialists collaborate regularly with classroom teachers to support the most effective learning environment for PCR students.

If you are interested in PCR and would like to have an interview with PCR staff at the time of your regular HC interview, please indicate this on your application by checking YES to PCR interest. The PCR staff will help decide what level of services your student may need.

We feel strongly that if a student comes to HC in need of accommodations, he/she is likely in need of, and will benefit from, strategy classes.



"Going to Houston Christian is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. My teachers really inspired me to learn and grow in my faith. As a football captain, baseball player, National Honor Society officer and D-group leader, I have had many opportunities to develop as a leader and enjoy the many aspects of high school."

Stoetzer Gray

"My time at Houston Christian really prepared me for college very well. My favorite teacher was Coach Craig. Every class was a different life lesson that prepared me for the real world. HC was a great fit for me and I am so thankful for the opportunities that it offered me."

Blake Remedios


"My most memorable moment at HC was giving my life up officially to Christ during Chapel my junior year. My favorite teacher was all of them, because within the two years I was here, I got the opportunity to learn something from each of them. I feel HC has prepared me for college and the real world. It provided me with the opportunity to attend the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. I was offered a place on their basketball team."
