All students in grades 7-12 are commissioned into the house system when they enter Whitefish Christian Academy. This classical system of intramural activity provides excellent leadership and camaraderie across grades. Juniors and seniors lead and mentor underclassmen in a spirit of kinship that influence citizenship, responsible leadership and an attitude of service. The virtues are extolled and fostered in the “house environment.” Upper classmen engage in a more realistic form of student government than class-based student government because their responsibility stretches across a broader context of experience.

 What makes our house system unique compared to other classical schools is the leadership, life skills and physical training that is the backbone of our program. We have a comprehensive program that teaches the practice of leadership, opportunities to exercise that leadership and recognition of growth in leadership in all its facets, all under a Christian moral umbrella.                                                                                   

Students meet for one class period a week and periodically outside of school hours for community service projects and special events. Students will participate in a variety of activities some of which include:                                                      

  • Fall Retreat
  • Service Projects
  • Competitive Events
  • First Aid
  • Positions of Responsibility
  • Formal Dance
  • Wealth Management

The virtues we pursue are: prudence, justice, temperance, fortitude, faith, hope and love.
We achieve these through: self-discipline, compassion, responsibility, friendship, work, courage, perseverance, honesty, loyalty, and faithfulness.
