HC (originally called Northwest Academy) was founded in 1998. Northwest Academy (K-12) split into First Baptist Academy and Houston Christian High School. First Baptist Academy moved to a location next to Houston First Baptist Church, and Houston Christian remained at the Northwest Academy site until a new school was built off of Beltway 8 (stretches of Beltway 8 are designated as the Sam Houston Tollway).[citation needed] HC originally occupied a 14.5 acres (5.9 ha) site at 4211 Watonga Boulevard. The British School of Houston opened on the former HC campus in September 2000.[3]
