Our School's Story
The Christian School at Castle Hills seeks to lead students to know Christ and make Christ known.
Our roots and earliest beginnings started in 1961 in the establishment of a private Christian preschool and kindergarten. In 1981, Dr. George H. Harris and a group of interested members of Castle Hills First Baptist Church founded our school. In 1987, we graduated our first class and were accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ASCI).
Our current enrollment is approximately 600 students in preschool through 12th grade. The Christian School at Castle Hills has had over 1000 graduates, who today are dotted around the globe leading and serving their world. Among them are physicians, lawyers, engineers, business leaders and entrepreneurs, pastors, teachers, and missionaries. The biblical worldview and servant leadership principles they were taught at Castle Hills are now influencing their generation.
Castle Hills has a long track record for academic achievement. Across the years, 98% of our graduates have been college bound. Routinely, Castle Hills classes’ score more than two years above national averages on standardized testing.
