The House System
The LPCA House System strengthens our middle and high school culture by creating a strong sense of community and belonging amongst students and staff. The House System will provide opportunities for leadership, spiritual growth and accountability for our Patriots.
Houses are named after one of our nine Patriot Virtues, except for the virtue of Faith. Faith is the foundation that our school, our hope, and our House community is built upon. It encompasses all that we do.
How are students sorted into Houses?
The Administration team, along with the Student Activities Coordinator, will group students by grade and then randomly assign students into Houses. This ensures a wide range of ages grow together. We cannot honor House requests or preferences.
Will my children be in the same House?
Yes! All members of an immediate family will be in the same House.
Will students remain in the same House through middle and high school?
Yes. This allows relationships to grow deeper and gives a sense of ownership and loyalty to their House.
Do the Houses compete for points?
Yes. Houses participate in various school activities that develop and support community, leadership, service, and spiritual development. Additionally, House members compete to earn points for their House via competitions, attendance, and adhering to LPCA school policies. Competitions can be academic in nature or simply friendly games. Winners are announced quarterly and a House Cup will be awarded at the end of the year for the House that earns the most points overall.
What are the House names?
There are eight Houses: Compassion, Giving, Respect, Responsibility, Self-Discipline, Loyalty, Honesty, and Perseverance. Each House is named after one of our Patriot Virtues, except for Faith. We believe Faith is the foundation for all we do at LPCA, including our House system.
Will elementary students be involved?
Each House will “adopt” an elementary class each year. As our House System grows, the upperclass students will get more opportunities to lead and encourage our younger Patriots.
How will Houses communicate?
We are currently researching best practices to ensure everyone gets all the information needed. Email and Google Classroom will be the primary sources of communication for Houses at this time.
