Patterned after British secondary-schooling tradition, Liberty’s House System helps set the school apart from others. Upon entering high school at Liberty, each student is inducted into their House – a community within a community – which serves as a student-life team providing peer-to-peer support, camaraderie, and practical reinforcement toward acquiring rare leadership experiences across the entire student body.
What is the House System?
The LCHS House System is a student-organizational structure in grades 9-12 designed to manage maturing students through the establishment of vertical peer divisions. This, “family within a family” framework achieves specific academic and student-life objectives. The system supplants the traditional horizontal “student-government” groupings of school class, age and grade level by creating smaller integrated communities of students within the school.
The LCHS House System also provides a framework for student governance allowing greater opportunity for development of meaningful leadership for more students.
- To increase institutional and peer-to-peer support for each student.
- To ensure individual care for each student with at least two adults who will monitor and support the academic, social, moral and behavioral growth of each LCHS student.
- To multiply occasions to build strong, healthy student relationships.
- To develop leadership skills in every student.
- To enhance recruitment of new students.
- To maintain relationships with LCHS graduates.
- Enhanced school-family spirit spanning freshman- through senior-class divisions.
- More robust opportunities for all LCHS seniors to be trained as leaders through hands-on service gaining meaningful, valuable leadership experience.
- More legitimate resume-building opportunities for every student.
- More robust leadership opportunities for LCHS underclassmen.
- Stronger interpersonal-relationship skills for each LCHS student.
- More focused support internalizing LCHS character development.
