In order to build camaraderie among all students and instill leadership skills in older students, CCA uses a house system for all of it's students.
At the beginning of each school year, new students will be placed in a house they will remain in for the duration of their time at CCA. House leaders will be determined by the staff and will be chosen from the Upper School students. Houses will meet each week where they will hand out merits/demerits the students have earned in the previous weeks, celebrate birthdays, memorize Scripture, and track box tops and labels, which are collected by house.
Each year CCA awards a House Trophy engraved with the name of the house that has earned the most points for its various achievements over the course of the year. House members may earn points for their house in a few ways: first, by going above and beyond in acts of godly service, chivalry, and the fruits of the Spirit; second, by outstanding academic achievement; and third, by their excellent participation in competitions and exhibitions of skill throughout the year. House members may also lose points for their house by misbehaving (e.g., tardiness, rule-breaking, uniform violations, etc.).
