House System

 

072b

Modeling a system often used in British schools, Trinitas has instituted a House System. Historically, the system began because students in boarding schools ate, studied, and lived together in literal houses. Today the term House refers to groupings of students. Trinitas students in grades four through twelve have been placed in one of four houses. Each house has a student leader, the House Steward, chosen by the faculty, and three peer-elected officers. Throughout the school year these houses will compete in academic as well as athletic contests in order to earn points. Houses will also have the opportunity to earn house points by participating in community service projects and other school-related activities. The House System will encourage camaraderie among the students as well as teach the students how to be Godly competitors.
