- House System
|The House of Homer||The House of Lewis||The House of Wallace||The House of Wright|
On a high school campus, where can camaraderie, competition, student leadership, service to school and community all coalesce?
Traditionally, these components of school life found expression in the house system common to many classical schools of the past.
The purpose of the High School House System at Coram Deo Academy is to provide students opportunity to exercise self-government, develop in leadership, establish school honor and spirit, and to serve the community. Education at Coram Deo is vigorous and it should be more enjoyable. We pray the House System helps our students to embrace a vigorous lifelong education.
Camaraderie and Competition
The House System divides a school's student body into four sections, or houses. This allows students the opportunity to get to know a wider variety of students and compete for academic and athletic excellence. Each house has its own character and customs that make it unique. The house members engage in an endless variety of activities, which include performing in student-led talents shows and participating in intramural sports, both of which have the potential to garner points for their respective houses.
Within each house is an organized student government, which presides over the decisions, activities, focus of the house, and the raising and allocation of funds. There are anywhere from five to seven governing positions that nearly any student can run for, thus involving as many people as possible.
