House System

Recommended Posts


Does your school have a "house system"? When we think of schools that divide students into "houses," most of us probably immediately think of Harry Potter ("10 points for Gryffindor!"), which is of course based on a traditional English model. A number of classical schools have also added such a system in recent years (at least one college, too). Our school started ours about five years ago. It has definitely been a work in progress, but it provides some really great opportunities for the students. Here's a little more info on how ours is set up: https://www.carychristianschool.org/prospective-families/ccs-community/house-system/.

If your school has one or you know of one that does, how is it set up and what kinds of activities are the students involved in?

What have you found to be the biggest blessings and the biggest challenges? Would you recommend it to other schools?
