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.          

"Going to Houston Christian is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. My teachers really inspired me to learn and grow in my faith. As a football captain, baseball player, National Honor Society officer and D-group leader, I have had many opportunities to develop as a leader and enjoy the many aspects of high school."

Stoetzer Gray

"My time at Houston Christian really prepared me for college very well. My favorite teacher was Coach Craig. Every class was a different life lesson that prepared me for the real world. HC was a great fit for me and I am so thankful for the opportunities that it offered me."

Blake Remedios


"My most memorable moment at HC was giving my life up officially to Christ during Chapel my junior year. My favorite teacher was all of them, because within the two years I was here, I got the opportunity to learn something from each of them. I feel HC has prepared me for college and the real world. It provided me with the opportunity to attend the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. I was offered a place on their basketball team."
