Houston Christian High School Photo #1 - The "Passport to Lead" program's vision is to inspire young people to lead by uniting faith, intellect and gifts to reach their greatest promise. We teach our students to take the lead to influence people to achieve a common goal and, through this process, honor God. In addition, leadership topics are integrated in the curriculum of every course taught at HC.
HC provides rigorous academic programs that prepare every student for collegiate study, but our community goes beyond the classroom.
Our faculty and staff engage students in service and leadership opportunities through student governance, athletics, and fine arts that build confidence and skills to assist in developing a life focus.
We understand we are training tomorrow's leaders and examine issues that encourage students to seek knowledge and understanding before drawing conclusions.
We educate for character because, in their future, our students will need the solid values and convictions that a Christian world view imparts.
