House Management

Management of each House is a community effort.

The Head of House lives on campus in a family home adjacent to the House. He or she is supported by an Assistant Head of House and residence don. In addition, a full team of advisors watches over the welfare, personal and academic progress of every student in the House and is the main point of contact for parents.

Faculty members are also associated with a specific House and provide night duty supervision on a rotational basis at their assigned House. This offers faculty and students an opportunity to interact outside of the classroom.

As part of their House, students have the opportunity to get involved by:
  • Helping to run the House
  • Leading service projects
  • Excelling in House competitions
  • Mentoring younger students
  • Performing in House arts events
  • Representing their House schoolwide
