House System

Kestrel. Nighthawk. Osprey. Peregrine.

Ask any Academy at the Lakes community member, and they will quickly identify these Florida birds of prey as the school’s four “Houses.”

The House System, which launched during the 2004-05 school year, places all students and teachers PreK3 through Grade 12 into one of four Houses. To encourage family ties, siblings and cousins are assigned to the same House.

Through the House System, a variety of community-building activities have become traditions at Academy, including a field day called House Day, other spirit events, and Buddy Reading. Through these activities, relationships can develop between students of all divisions and ages.

At the end of each school year, the House Cup is awarded to the team that accumulates the most points in the various spirit, academic, and field day events held throughout the year.
