Houston Christian believes that our students will become the change-makers and leaders of our world. It is our commitment to leadership that sets us apart from others. In the spring of 2005, a Leadership Development Committee was established and charged with the responsibility of developing a comprehensive leadership program conducted by the faculty to permeate all facets of curricular, co-curricular and school community life. The Committee worked nine months to develop the Passport to Lead Program. 

The Passport to Lead Program has served students of Houston Christian since its inception and is growing into the largest and one of the most respected programs on campus. Currently the Passport to Lead Program focuses primarily on three areas:

  • Elective Leadership Courses
  • Integrated Leadership Lessons within all Department Courses
  • Co-Curricular and Extra Curricular Leadership Activities.

These opportunities lead to an increasing number of students working towards attaining a Leadership Endorsement at the end of their high school career.


'I had a group I ate lunch with called the "Lunch Bunch," which met in Mr. Lister's classroom. Mr. Lister liked to call us "the vultures." Mr. Lister was always available after school for discussion and has been a source of wisdom and advice in my important decisions and biblical questions. He constantly encouraged me to read the Word daily and research my questions to ensure I had the right conclusion and thought process. I learned the value of questioning and striving to be a lifelong learner. I hope to carry the wisdom of Mr. Lister into college and the years after."

"My Houston Christian education has given me so many opportunities far beyond what I could have ever thought or dreamed. The Fine Arts department allowed me to excel not only as a performer, but as a whole person. What stand out to me in my time at HC are the numerous teachers and peers I have met who truly care about me and the individual I am becoming inside and out of the classroom."

"My favorite aspect of HC was the opportunity to be so involved my senior year. I was the co-captain of the cheerleading squad, Student Council public relations officer, a Student Ambassador, a D-group leader, member of the Passport to Lead program, and a member of the Diversity Club. HC has taught me to always strive for what I want and never stop trying."
