“Four houses united to love, learn, and serve Him.”
-from Our House Song
At Covenant, everyone belongs to someone. Our four houses organize our school community around the ideals that define our school: wisdom and virtue. House systems are a by-product of traditional British boarding schools, where students of varying ages lived together in a physical house, overseen by invested faculty members who would actively disciple and lead their students in school-wide activities and competitions.
British houses were named after the faculty member but ours are named after American founding fathers, Patriots deemed worthy of imitation. In keeping with the ethos of classical education, and with the purpose of maintaining a rich culture of community, all students and faculty are placed into one of four houses: Washington, Madison, Hamilton, and Henry.
These houses (or teams) provide students with abundant leadership options and encourage excellence through friendly competition. Each of our houses has chosen a virtue and a motto that they will actively seek to define them. These virtues, wisdom, courage, perseverance, and love are worthy pursuits for all as we seek to be lifelong learners in community with one another.
