Relationships are what connect us with each other and the world around us. We experience life through our relationships, and they are more important than ever for students. The CAL House Mentorship program was designed to help foster relationships within our student body and across the traditional grade barriers.
When a student enters 7th grade they are inducted into their House: Matthew, Mark, Luke or John. These placements are prayerfully considered taking into account personalities, talents, and drive of the student. Once a student is placed in a House they will stay with that House until graduation. We have a special service in which the students are inducted into their house and receive their special pins.
These House groups share special lunch times together, plan school wide activities, and are the basis of our student government. All year long they work together to earn points in the following categories: Honor, Empathy, and Duty. These points are tallied up and the House with the most points wins the coveted House Cup.
Even though the Houses are assigned to 7th graders, our lower school grades are not left out. Three times a year the younger students are assigned a temporary House and they all participate together in field day events. These events have become a tradition that develop a sense of pride in the entire student body.
Our House Mentorship program is a critical component of helping students navigate the transition from lower school into upper school. The Houses are a wonderful vehicle to offer positive peer pressure and Godly encouragement in a time when it is more important than ever.
