HOUSE SYSTEM: Moeller has followed a British form of student governance since 2004. All students are divided vertically among six “Houses” each of which includes seven multi-level Mentor Groups. The system allows for more student leadership opportunities and greater attention to pastoral care and community building.
THE HOUSE SYSTEM: Implemented in 2005, the House System has three primary objectives:
1. To increase pastoral care to each student,
2. To allow students opportunities to build strong personal and collegial relationships, and
3. To encourage every student to develop as a leader.
The House System is an alternative form of student governance where students from all grades are divided into separate groups called “Houses” that contain approximately 165 students. Each of Moeller's six Houses is overseen by a “House Dean” who helps to establish smaller communities of students within the school. Within each House are “Mentor Groups” that consist of approximately 20 students. Each Mentor Group is staffed by a faculty/staff member, and these groups remain together throughout the students’ school years. In addition to its primary objectives to enhance pastoral care, encourage interpersonal relationships, and develop leadership skills, the House System increases school spirit. Each year the Houses compete for the school honor of earning the "Marianist Cup" by accumulating points for attendance, service hours, fewest detentions, etc. At the end of the year the Houses compete in the Crusader Games, a spirited afternoon of activitiesSCHOOL: Moeller is an all-boys Catholic high school (grades 9-12) located in the northeastern suburbs of
