Student Life

House System

A Place to Belong.

The Lutheran South House System is designed to develop student relationships across all grade levels and enhance school spirit and a sense of belonging. Houses provide students with an additional avenue for involvement and engagement with their school peers. Students and faculty are assigned to large family groups for the purpose of cultivating peer support and mentorship. The goal is to create emotional and social engagement by intentionally targeting the development of positive relationships outside typical academic interactions.
 
Each house has nobles with representatives from each grade level. The Nobles are chosen by their House peers and are representatives who meet with faculty and other House courts. The Houses will spend time together in social and competitive events. Houses earn points that will be tallied monthly.
 
Each house has its own symbol, motto, and crest.
