The House System creates a safe opportunity for healthy competition, promotes school events and bridges grades K-12. It is based around the idea of inclusion, teamwork, and creating a unique experience for our students.

Students are placed into a House upon enrollment at RA and remain in that House through graduation. The Houses are named after our school’s founders: Hope-Stephens, Barr-Bergstrom, Kaplan-Finkenaur, and McGunnigle-Petrecca.

Throughout the year, students can participate in house events in order to earn points. Points are accumulated to produce an overall winning House, who receives the House Cup.

Meet the Founders!
