It will move from its current location at 11123 Cypress N. Houston Road, Houston, to the intersection of Prairieland Creek Drive and Bridgeland Creek Parkway.
The new 130,000-square-foot campus will be built on a 40-acre property to house up to 1,000 K-12 students and more than 100 staff members, according to a news release. This space will allow the school to expand educational facilities and athletics amenities, and accommodate for a new fine arts building and ample parking, officials said.
“Thanks to our remarkable and supportive families, we have outgrown our current campus, presenting us with a unique opportunity to build a larger educational facility in Bridgeland that will allow us a greater impact on the lives of our current and future students,” Cypress Christian School President Jeffrey Potts said in a statement. “The availability of space in such an exceptional, award-winning community allows us to further our mission of academic excellence and biblical values. We firmly believe this decision is the bridge to our future.”
Cypress Christian School is the largest private school in the Cy-Fair area with a current enrollment of nearly 700 students and has a mission to provide both academic excellence and biblical values.
Earlier this year, the school won the 2020-21 4A Henderson Cup, which is awarded to the best overall private school statewide based on achievement in academics, fine arts and athletics, according to Cypress Christian School officials. Additionally, the school’s football team took home the TAPPS Division III state championship title in early December.
Officials with the Howard Hughes Corp. said they are excited to welcome the school and offer residents additional education options for their children.
“Bridgeland is home to acclaimed schools, with a strong educational legacy that has been built over 15 years,” said Heath Melton, a regional president for The Howard Hughes Corp., in a statement. “As one of the top-selling master-planned communities in Texas, the number of families choosing to live in Bridgeland is rapidly growing, and high-quality schools help drive that success. Cypress Christian School will be a welcome addition to the number of academic offerings available to Bridgeland residents.”
