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.
