Margaret Mead, famous anthropologist and writer

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.
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 Tessa L.

The House System at CDA improves campus life! It allows for students of all grade levels, genders, and school days to interact, have some friendly competition, and grow as a team. It teaches students how to be the best leader that they can during house battles, pep rallies, and even when seeking the illustrious spirit stick. Students that may never see each other Monday-Thursday are able to work together to win challenges and serve our community. The weekly devotions also allow for students to become stronger in the faith as a community. House is enjoyable for students, and beneficial to the environment of Coram Deo.

House of Wallace President Sam G.

"House gives me the ability to interact with people that I don’t normally see. House provides students with opportunities to be with friends while competing in House Battle, cheering at Pep Rallies, and also learning and listening to people about their careers or about becoming better
followers of Christ. House is a place where students of all grades can have fun and should be taken advantage of. See you there!"

House of Wright President J.B. Lilley

The House system is an excellent opportunity for students to plan and participate in debate, student government, oratory, and leadership. It may be one of the best ways to make friends outside your grade level at CDA, and it certainly provides a lively and memorable High School experience. As President of the House of Wright during the 2021-2022 school year, I look forward to working with my classmates to reinvigorate our House fellowship after a year apart.
