The House System

all gridCOLOR

New Covenant School is excited to announce that we have added a House System to our Upper School. Every 6th through 12th grader has been placed in a house that they will remain a part of forever. The Houses accumulate points throughout the year with friendly competitions and random acts of kindness.

The Houses are named after our founding Pastor, Dr. David Rountree and our previous Headmasters, Mr. Maurice Lopez, Mr. Dennis Bills, and Mr. Joey Thames.

The Houses are based on Psalm 1, especially verse 3…

“He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.”

The House System was introduced when our students attended an Upper School Fall Retreat at Camp Hope, September 6th through 8th. The House fun began immediately with the students competing in various games and activities. The goal of the program is to improve the student experience at NCS by giving our students increased opportunities for fellowship. Below are some pictures of the Houses from the retreat!
