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 Joey M.

The House of Arc has been a huge part of me growing up and becoming a better leader. I’m so excited to get to come back and serve as President again for the 2020 school year. My officers and I are ready to continue to grow the house closer and continue to develop student leaders within the school. 

House of Churchill President Spencer B.

My favorite aspect of the house system is the opportunity for student leadership. In Churchill I’ve learned so much about how to grow positive relationships, create a welcoming atmosphere, and encourage my fellow students to also lead. I’m excited this year to guide the house of Churchill and promote a strong sense of community!

House of Luther President Sarah S.

Hello! Since Freshman year I have felt a strong bond in the house of Luther. With its family like environment filled with competition, creativity and fun I grew to love the house and all its members! As president, this year I am so thankful to have an opportunity to create that same community that captivated me from the beginning!

House of Newton President Scott M.

For my first three years, the House of Newton has been an amazing community to be a part of. This coming year I hope to make it even better and return Newton to the top of the leaderboard at the end of the year.  Together we rise!
