School Governance 

HOUSE SYSTEM: Moeller has followed a British form of student governance since 2005 and 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.

In this innovative form of student governance, 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. Each Mentor Group is staffed by a faculty/staff member, and these groups remain together throughout the students’ school years.

In addition to its primary objectives, the House System increases school spirit. Each year the Houses compete for the 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, which is a spirited afternoon of activities.
