Advanced Placement Courses

The Advanced Placement Program, sponsored by the College Board, is an intensive program of college-level curricula and examinations that provides high school students an opportunity to earn college credit while in high school. Faculty members who teach AP courses at Houston Christian High School develop their course by designing a syllabus and reading schedule to emulate that of college level courses. It is important to understand that AP and Pre-AP courses are designed to challenge the highly motivated student.

It's easy for parents to look at grade point average as the determinate for getting into college. Although GPA is considered for gaining admission to college, it is not the variable that determines how successful a student will be once he or she is in college. According to college admissions' officers, the best predictor of college success is the type of courses a student takes while in high school. AP classes set students up for success.          

"Houston Christian was the perfect fit for me to develop as a student and a leader over my four years here. The teachers and students helped foster an environment that promotes fellowship and support. My teachers genuinely cared for me and went the extra mile to help me succeed. My time at Houston Christian has thoroughly prepared me for college while offering the experiences and opportunities I wanted in high school."

"My most memorable experience at HC was being part of the robotics team in its first year. Despite having no prior experience, our team won five awards and advanced to regionals. This experience demonstrated the dedication my fellow students have to their work and the eagerness they have to give their all in everything they do."

"Houston Christian has provided me with so many opportunities to get involved. Through my involvement with Fine Arts over the past four years, I have been able to not only make great memories, but make an amazing group of friends. By being a part of Fine Arts, particularly choir and theatre, I have been able to experience the amazing sense of community HC has to offer."
