Moeller's Laptop Program began in 1995, and currently every incoming student leases a state-of-the-art tablet computer. Educational research proves that learning occurs most effectively when students are presented with a variety of learning options. In any secondary classroom, we believe opportunities for creative, higher-level problem solving and hands-on experiences are important, and technology may be one of the best learning tools available to meet these needs. Our experience proves that when handled properly the computer can be an effective catalyst and tool for learning in the classroom and at home.
THE HOUSE SYSTEM: Implemented in 2005, the House System has three primary objectives:
1. To increase pastoral care to each student,
2. To allow students opportunities to build strong personal and collegial relationships, and
3. To encourage every student to develop as a leader.
The House System is an alternative form of student governance where students from all grades are divided into separate groups called “Houses” that contain approximately 165 students. Each of Moeller's six Houses is overseen by a “House Dean” who helps to establish smaller communities of students within the school. Within each House are “Mentor Groups” that consist of approximately 20 students. The Mentor Groups are staffed by a faculty/staff member, and these groups remain together throughout the students’ school years. In addition to its primary objectives to enhance pastoral care, encourage interpersonal relationships, and develop leadership skills, the House System increases school spirit. Each year the Houses compete for the school honor of earning the "Marianist Cup" by accumulating points for attendance, service hours, fewest detentions, etc. At the end of the year the Houses compete in the Crusader Games, a spirited afternoon of activities.
