House System

House System

As a classical school featuring a curriculum based on the traditions of Western culture, Leman Academy of Excellence (LAE’s) House System is inspired by the ideals of republican participation, shared leadership, and civil service.

Specifically, the LAE House System exists for three purposes:

  • to allow scholars a system in which they can belong, collaborate, and serve.
  • to allow families an organizing structure to build community, celebrate learning, and give back to their local school.
  • to support school events and other school needs with the creativity, energy, and
    leadership of our family-volunteers in each grade-level.
