Houston Christian is dedicated to the development of moral character, the enrichment of spiritual lives, and the perpetuation of growth in Christian ideas. The Student & Parent handbook has been prepared as a guide to school officials, students, and parents to govern the policies of Houston Christian. If the contents of this handbook are known and the guidelines followed by all, the school will function smoothly and efficiently resulting in increased academic achievement and satisfaction. Each Houston Christian High School student and parent must be familiar with the policies and practices in existence. The pages on this website serve to highlight various aspects of the Student and Parent Handbook, but do not serve as a substitute for reading the handbook itself.
Responsibility of Students and Parents
Enrollment in Houston Christian is a privilege and not a right. Students who are enrolled in the school and their parents must continually and consistently obey all rules. Parents will be asked to withdraw students who repeatedly violate minor rules or violate major ones. Lack of knowledge of a particular policy provided herein will not excuse a parent or student form the responsibility of obeying it.
HC believes that a positive and constructive working relationship between the school and the students' parents (guardians) is essential to the fulfillment of the school's mission.
Houston Christian is committed to the following four core values:
- Honor - demonstrate integrity through ethical decision-making.
- Community - serve one another in harmony with honesty and humility.
- Heritage - pursue the ideals of the Christian faith in heart, mind and action
- Scholarship - cultivate intellectual vitality through the curriculum.
