The House System

A crucible for leadership.
A family of students.

At Holy Spirit Prep, students are “tied” into a House which they will call their House for the rest of their lives. The House System serves as a platform for intrascholastic competition and collaboration throughout the school year. Our alumni love to return to campus and check up on their house.
