The Packinghouse Cup

Similar to the "House System" found in schools in England, the middle/high school students are split up into 4 teams or "houses" named after Biblical virtues: Alteri (Selflessness), Virtus (Courage), Sapere (Wisdom), and Constantia (Endurance). These teams consist of students from 6th-12th grade. Each team has 2 student leaders who help organize team activities,  lead meetings, and mentor the other team members. Team leaders are also mentored and discipled by faculty members through our leadership development program, LDR. Teams compete throughout the year, earning points for honorable behavior, service to others, positive character, and by winning team competitions held each month. The team with the most points at the end of the year will win the Packinghouse Cup.
