Program for College Readiness

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.



"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."
