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.          

"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."

"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."
