Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has changed it.

- Margaret Mead, famous anthropologist and writer
In 2007, the House System was introduced to Coram Deo Academy.  In each house there are leaders, athletes, musicians, and artists. This System was put in place so that students are free to express the various gifting and talents God has given them. In each student is a leader and the House System provides the perfect opportunity for them to step out and step up. The House System was not made to “crown a winner” but to build community, relationships, and a voice for students in the presence of God.

Founded on Four Pillars

CDA’s House System for Flower Mound was founded upon four pillars that continue to serve as its organizational goals:

  • Leadership
  • Honor and Spirit
  • Self-governance
  • Community Service
 
The development of these principles is one of the ways CDA trains students to be ethical servant-leaders and wise thinkers who will shape culture for the glory of God.

House of Homer President Jolie H.

In Homer, our goal is to be the “most fun” house! What I truly enjoy about the House of Homer is that making a difference does not require a title, just the desire to do so. Every member not only has the opportunity to make a positive contribution in Homer, but the entire house system as well. I am honored to have the privilege of serving such wonderful house and I am committed to making this year in Homer rememberable and extremely fun!

House of Lewis President Zach L.

What the House System brings to CDA is interactions between students of all grades in high school who usually don't have classes together, giving them an opportunity to grow a relationship they will cherish. House has many options for students with different talents to compete in, like House Battles, which include games like Dodgeball and Volleyball, and the Alfred Cup Debate. Many students also enjoy the Pep rallies which includes doing a House dance with all your buddies. I definitely recommend participating in House because of all the fun activities and the time you get share with your friends.

House of Wallace President Claire C.

House has given me a community over these past years of high school. I’ve gotten to know so many people either inside or outside of my class. This year as president I hope to be an incredible leader and continue the community-like atmosphere.

House of Wright President Madeline B.

The House of Wright gives me the opportunity to utilize my talents. I enjoy showing my school spirit at pep rallies and competing in the Alfred Cup debates. As President, I am excited to promote a sense of community, so everyone can find a place to contribute while having fun!
