Collin County House System

Being born out of the rich House tradition of the Flower Mound Campus, the Collin County House system began in the spring of 2012 and has grown along with our school. Our initial House Presidents helped lead the way along with their House officers, to create the House names which were chosen in recognition of these two men whose leadership and courage helped transform their worlds.
 
The primary goal of the House System in Collin County is to help students learn and grow as ethical servant leaders and wise thinkers who can shape culture for the glory of God. Consequently, the officers and students have been catalysts for several initiatives: developing the respective coats of arms for the Houses, the colors, mottos, values, t-shirts and designs and even the official House mascot, "Rufus." They have helped spur on community service projects (such as Operation Christmas Child) and also practice a self-governance that emphasizes developing friendships across grade levels and encouraging one another in their relationship with the Lord.

House Offices

President & Vice President
The President and Vice President are responsible for providing overall leadership for their Houses, and for coordinating the annual House retreat and weekly House meetings. The presidents and vice-presidents work closely with the respective Faculty Advisors of their Houses.

Chaplains
Chaplains provide oversight of the Tuesday morning devotional program and also other initiatives related to spiritual growth and development. The Chaplains are advised by the House Coordinator of Spiritual Development, who is a faculty member with a Master’s degree in theology and practical pastoral/ministry experience.

Community Service Coordinators
The role of Community Service Coordinators is to work with the planning, mobilization and implementation of service opportunities within and outside the school for the glory of God. The Community Service Coordinators are advised by one of the faculty House advisors.

Historians
Historians are those who document school traditions and help carry on the legacy of the House. In addition to photography and preserving memories of the Houses, at their own initiative this fall, the Collin County Historians plan on implementing a periodic student-run publication.

Intramural Coordinators
Intramural Coordinators oversee the competitions between the Houses in their battle to gain the right to the title at the end of the year of the Coram Deo Academy Collin County “Manticore Cup” Trophy. Both the historians and intramural coordinators are advised by the Intramural/Historian Coordinator, who as both a Coram Deo faculty member and CDA-Flower Mound alumnus, is quite familiar with the long history and tradition of our campus.

House of Arc President Michael S.

Being the President of the House of Arc is something I greatly look forward to this year. I have been in Arc since the beginning of its life, whether as a battle sergeant or VP, or now President. All those days spent with all my Arc friends and classmates, truly helps me to cherish the friendships and relationships that begin to grow in high school. Arc has always been a place where I can come and be myself for an hour and half on Fridays, and that's what I and my fellow officers hope to continue to bring to the House of Arc!

House of Churchill President Macy M.

Ever since my Freshman year I fell in love with the community that Churchill provides. I love seeing all grades get to compete, work together, and serve others. I can not wait to see Churchill continue this great community as we welcome the new freshman, teach them the spirit of Churchill, and “never, never, never, never give up!”

House of Luther President Audrey S.

The House of Luther has shaped my high school years tremendously with its fun and creativity filled environment. But most of all, I love the bond that our Luther community has; people from all grades, all extracurriculars, all days get to work together to compete and grow in friendships along the way. I am so excited to be the president of Luther this year to foster the same loving community that welcomed me and cultivated a love for the house and its members. 

House of Newton President Thomas S.

Hello! The House of Newton has always not only been a meaningful community, but also a place for everyone involved to have fun and grow. As president, I’m so excited to continue the spirit of house. My officers and I are looking forward to making this year one to remember.
