Houses

The house system

Students at Akademeia High School work in communities called houses.

The houses, modeled off of similar systems in British secondary schools, are an excellent and proven way to build a spirit of healthy competition, stimulate creativity and foster relationships between students. Students gain experience communicating in groups, run democratic elections and learn to be active and committed members of society.

The demands placed upon the student groups in the houses help them to develop a range of skills:

  • preparation for theater projects teaches teamwork and helps students gain confidence in public speaking;
  • charitable initiatives provide an opportunity to develop social awareness and empathy;
  • study trips and meetings with interesting figures arouse passions, and prove that there is more joy to be had when studies and work are coupled with commitment;
