House System

House Banner
The purpose of the House System at Aquinas is to enhance the mission of the school by focusing on faith, character, and scholarship. We are dedicated to developing student leadership skills and connecting students with their peers, the faculty and staff, and the Aquinas community. Houses are like teams; everyone belongs and everyone participates. Houses work together to compete in the areas of academics, attendance, virtue, participation in school spirit and activities, and community service.

Quick Facts about House
  • Each House is named after a Saint: St. Francis of Assisi, St. Lawrence of Rome, St. Catherine of Siena, St. John Vianney
  • As Freshmen, students are randomly assigned to one of four Houses, giving them the opportunity to interact with students from all grade levels. (Siblings belong to the same House)
  • Every House is divided into 3 mentor groups that we call Tiny Houses.
  • Tiny Houses meet 4 times a week: one day in the chapel, one day for reflection, and two days to play!
  • All students participate – you don’t have to be at the top of the class academically or athletically.
  • Houses provide great opportunities for student leadership.
