Rosehill Christian School was founded in 1990. Prior to 1990, Rosehill Christian School was a ministry of Boys’ and Girls’ Country in Hockley, Texas. Mr. and Mrs. T.A. Robinson founded a Christian school on their campus to minister to the students who lived at Boys’ and Girls’ Country. Students from the surrounding community were invited to enroll as well. When Boys’ and Girls’ Country chose to send their students to public school, a group of parents formed a Board and a non-profit organization with a vision was borne. Rosehill Christian School and its new Board were allowed to rent buildings on the Boys’ and Girls’ Country campus for two years until the school was faced with having to provide their own facilities. A board member stepped out by faith and placed money down on the existing fifteen acres which is located six miles west of Tomball, Texas, on FM 2920.
Rosehill Christian School became a member of the Association of Christian Schools International, or ASCI, in 1994 and joined TAPPS (Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools) during the 1995 -1996 school year. Throughout the 1990's, numerous athletic and fine arts programs were added to the challenging academic curriculum and the first Senior Class of Rosehill Christian School graduated in 1999. In 2008 the school received full accreditation from ICAA / SACS-CASI.
The Rosehill Christian School elementary building (Bldg. "D") was completed in 1993. The chapel (now Bldg."C") was finished in 1994, and both the Upper School building (now Bldg."D") and an open-air pavilion (now enclosed Bldg."E") were completed in 1995. The preschool building (Bldg."A") was constructed the following year. The new gymnasium, (called the "Faith Activity Center" now Bldg. "G") was finished in 2001.
In 2005, two constituents made generous donations to completely pay off all debt that Rosehill Christian School incurred during the preceding fourteen years of construction and growth. This gift also allowed the school to establish the Rosehill Charitable Foundation, whose established purpose is to support and enhance Rosehill Christian School.
A capital campaign, "Capturing Your Imagination" was launched in February of 2008, resulting in many gifts and donations of Gifts-in-Kind totaling close to 6 million dollars. An additional 6 acres of property was secured enabling the school to finish it's traffic flow master plan, drill a well for irrigation purposes, construct a first class athletic training center (Bldg. "J"), add a new football field, eight lane rubber track, stadium seating/press box, football lights, and baseball field. Infrastructure improvements included consolidating septic issues, aerobically distributing irrigation on all our athletic fields, creating a circular water main so any additional building may hook directly into the water source, running a 10 meg. ether net line into the school for technology, installing a first class wireless Aruba network to connect the entire campus to the internet, and adding over 150 lit paved parking spaces. The blessing is that after all these improvements the school still remains debt-free.
The ongoing financial support of generous constituents has allowed Rosehill Christian School to continue challenging students academically, while developing them spiritually. The requirement of each high school student to purchase a laptop for classroom use has dramatically increased our student's technological acumen as classroom technology is rapidly advancing to keep pace with the changing instructional needs and learning styles of today’s youth.
While many field trips are the order of each year, students regularly participate in Texas Tour in eighth grade and are given the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. later in their high school years. Service hours of 20 per year are required for graduation and generally results in the school supporting a particular ministry like "Living Water" in drilling wells in a third world country. In 2011 students traveled to El Salvador to witness the drilling of a well that was supported by donations from students and parents of the school.
Most importantly, however, Rosehill Christian School remains committed to its original vision of integrating God’s voice and vision into the lives of the students it serves while providing superior academic training and moral absolutes through the inerrant Word of God. Rosehill Christian School continues to be committed to the transference of Godly principles into the lives of students as an extension of the Christian home. It is only by the grace of God that the school is what it is today. We are so thankful for his hand of blessing.
As Christ expects excellence in our pursuit of holiness, RCS will promote an environment that leads to holiness and righteousness. This is accomplished by high standards and expectations of character, honor, and discipline by faculty, administration, and students. Godly character is promoted in the classroom, in the athletic environment, through extracurricular activities and permeates the complete breadth of the school.
It is RCS’ desire to produce young men and women of honor and academic standing to make a difference in the community wherever God leads them.
Rosehill Christian School’s Biblical role is to work in conjunction with the home to mold students to be Christ-like. Of necessity, this involves the school’s understanding and belief of what qualities or characteristics exemplify a Christ-like life. The school reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant or to discontinue enrollment of a student if the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home or the activities of the student are counter to or are in opposition to the Biblical lifestyle the school teaches. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, participating in, supporting, or condoning sexual immorality, homosexual activity, or bisexual activity; promoting such practices or being unable to support the moral principles of the school. (See Leviticus 20:13 and Romans 1:27)
