SR House System
The Four Houses at Veritas Academy
Augustine. Bonhoeffer. Francis. Müller.
The house system is not an innovative new thing that we thought up, nor did it start with Harry Potter. This has been done in English schools for centuries and is currently a thriving part of classical schools across the United States and even in Ivy League schools like Harvard and Yale. Though it seems to be a divisive element at first glance (dividing our one school into four houses), it has proven to be a unifying element of our school.
The house system is an on-going competition within the school that builds community, breaks down cliques, provides every student an instant place of belonging, and is just plain old fun. Since houses are not grade-specific, they also serve to increase the interaction between students of different grades.
Each house sends members to two different leadership bodies within the Student Congress. The two leadership bodies are Ambassadors and House Leaders. One underclassman from each house is appointed to serve on each of the following Ambassador teams: the Events Team, the Ministry Coordinators, the Service Team, and the Spirit Team. Three seniors from each house are elected to House Leadership, serving as the house Reliquarian, Baron, and Prefect. Ask a StuCon ambassador at the next Open House what serving in this capacity looks like!
