Student Life

House System

In August of 2013, Strake Jesuit launched their House System at Freshman Orientation. Students are divided amongst four houses, and remain in these houses until they graduate from Strake Jesuit. Throughout the year, houses compete against each other to earn their house various quarterly and yearly rewards.

The goal of the House System is to provide an opportunity for students and faculty to interact across grade levels. In doing so, the community benefits from increased school spirit, positive peer pressure, increased social connectedness, and healthy competition.
