To draw students and faculty together into closer relationships with each other and with Christ.
In order for students to thrive, we must place them in communities that are fully dedicated to not only filling their minds, but shaping their whole-person. Many times this takes a community within a community. Our school has adopted a British-style House System. Through this we have established distinct communities within our community. They are places where not only students, freshmen to seniors, belong, but faculty as well. Places where values are modeled and the common goods of our community are shared openly and willingly. Places where you can know and be known. Places where you can be urged to live toward that ultimate human life that parents want for their children. It is there that our students learn for themselves through the shared experience with others what it is they are intended to do. We hope to form the hearts and desires of students through:
- The construction of traditions that will train our students in virtuous living
- Nurturing relationships across rhetoric school grade levels and faculty
- Leadership, friendly competition, and service
- Positive peer pressure and mentorship
