“We want to be a community and we want to be involved in each other’s lives.”
All students in grades 7-12 are inducted into a house when they enter the school. They remain in this house until they graduate. This classical system of intramural activity began in boarding schools, and provides excellent leadership and camaraderie across grades. Juniors and seniors lead and mentor underclassmen in a spirit of kinship. We believe these upper classmen engage in a broader and more realistic form of student government than class-based student government because their responsibility stretches across a broader constituent base– the entire 7-12 population.
Our houses are named after great American theologians: George Whitefield, William Bradford, William Tennent, John Winthrop, Jonathan Edwards, and Francis Schaeffer.
Students meet at lunch and practice, and after school hours for community service projects. Students can choose from many activities including:
- Flag football
- Academic Bowl
- Service projects
Each year, the Headmaster’s Cup is awarded to the house receiving the highest total score from all the house activities.
