The House System
"Mixing Together to Make a Stronger Community"
For students in grades 6th through 8th, Saint Ambrose Catholic School offers the House System. This system brings together students from all three grades into several mixed grade “houses.” Teachers oversee the houses which are named after saints the students would like to emulate. Eighth graders can apply to mentor other students as house leaders. In additional to giving students a chance to interact with other students they might not know, it creates a community where student gain a sense of pride when they contribute to their house. Students can earn points for their house by participating in school events, community services and extracurricular activities.
