House Program

Creating esprit de corps

House is an intramural community.

The Academy House system was established to further the mission of the school in grades 7 – 12 through the formation of small communities within the Upper School student body. This classical system began in English boarding schools and provides a smaller community for every student and promotes mentorship between older and younger students.

The 4 houses are listed below. Click on their corresponding buttons to learn more about how they were chosen and what they represent.

7th-12th Grade Houses

A love for peers and school…

House is an intramural community that exists as a means of creating esprit de corps and accountable relationships, and love for peers and school, that students may develop virtuous character and become servant leaders in the Kingdom of God. Houses are smaller communities in the larger community, and as students are assigned to Houses they will find new friendships, new adventures, and new possibilities for service.

Within each house, students have opportunity for fellowship, leadership, service, healthy competition, and mentoring by faculty members and older students, ensuring that students know each other and build relationships across grade levels in the regular life of the Upper School community. Each year, rising seventh graders and new Academy students are inducted into Houses, where they will remain members throughout their Academy experience.
