Six Orders, Growing in Leadership and Virtue

Order System


The LCHS Order System is a student-organizational structure designed to manage LCHS junior-high students to achieve specific academic and student-life objectives.  The system supplants the traditional student council governing structure by creating smaller integrated communities of students (~30 students per Order, ~15 from each grade) within the school, thus providing a framework for student governance allowing greater opportunity for the development of meaningful leadership.
There are six different Orders, all competing for the Purple Duck.


  • To increase institutional and peer-to-peer support for each student
  • To ensure individual care for each student by the order deans who will monitor and support the academic, social, moral, and behavioral growth
  • To multiply occasions to build strong, healthy student relationships
  • To develop leadership skills in every student
  • To enhance recruitment of new students

 Unique Outcomes:

  • Enhanced school spirit
  • More robust opportunities for junior-high students to be trained as leaders through hands-on service
  • Stronger interpersonal relationship skills for each student
  • More focused support internalizing character development

The Legend of the Purple Duck

A Lesson on Ancient Mythological History

A long, long time ago in Erebor, the far, far away and lonely, mountainous land of the dragons, a magnificent golden egg was found. The legend does not reveal how, or by what glorious creature the egg was laid, but as the tale will tell, the egg clearly possessed a power beyond this world. The dragons, being very protective of their treasure, kept close watch over their golden prize.
