House System

Building community across grades.

The House system at Boston Trinity Academy aims to develop genuine community and pride in school culture while giving students significant opportunities for responsibility and leadership. Each student is assigned to one of four Houses, each named after an American champion of social justice: Jane Addams, Frederick Douglass, John Eliot, and Harriet Tubman. Two seniors lead each house by developing relationships within their House and fostering positive school culture. Houses also engage in friendly competition for the House Cup. They win points towards this end by engaging in a variety of activities that benefit the community.
