Cambridge House System

The House of Alfred Winning “The Cambridge Cup” in 2022-2023

House of Alfred Winning “The Cambridge Cup” for the first time, 22-23

The House System at Cambridge is an active, positive, and integral component to a Cambridge education. The House system reinforces our mission statement, and each year we see richer relationships develop in and because of the Houses.

Our Houses are named after four historical Christian Monarchs: Alfred, Justinian, Charlemagne, and Constantine. Teaching faculty members are also divided into Houses to serve as House Advisors, and they assist the student leaders in leading a variety of activities and events throughout the year. During the Annual All School Retreat, our Houses compete with each other in games like dodgeball, tug-o-war, and the student favorite “Night Game”. During the school week, Houses are competing with each other on the basis of House Points won and lost. The Houses meet each week to plan special initiatives like bake-offs, diaper or toy drives, and service projects lead by the House Head and student leaders. In December, our students celebrate their House and the House System at the Annual House Feast, where students and House Advisors alike feast together, give toasts, and exchange gifts. The year culminates with the awarding of the House Cup at Class Night to the House with the most points.
