Smith Preparatory Academy’s House System is drawn from the 1,000 year-old tradition of Christian education exemplified in English boarding schools. Houses produce a sense of community while providing students with opportunities for leadership and service, and advancing our stated mission of cultivating virtuous Christian scholars.
Each house elects four officers: the Head of House, the Steward, the Scholar, and the Ambassador. Together the officers guide their houses through the year’s activities including the Annual House Games, community service projects, and numerous individual House events. The officers also help plan and organize the annual House Ball held each Spring.
