HOUSE SYSTEM

In the fall of 2008 we implemented our house system to provide opportunities for students to serve multiple leadership roles, develop a Christ-centered community and foster positive relationships among students across all grade levels. 

All students are assigned to one of four houses: Amiens, Joigny, Grenoble, and Sacre Coeur. The student will remain in that house during his/her high school career. 

Over the course of the year the houses compete for the House Cup.  Points are awarded to each house for grades, participation, house competition victories, etc.  Points are deducted from each house for demerits like dress code violations.    The House Cup is presented to the winning house at the end of the year at our annual field day.

Amiens is named for the city in northern France where Madeleine Sophie Barat opened the first school of the Society of the Sacred Heart.

FRIENDSHIP

The hallmark of a Barat Academy high school career is the world class education each student receives and the life long friendships each student makes.  Of course we are proud of the ACT and SAT scores our students achieve but we are just as proud of the young men and women they become, the passion they have for serving their community and the amazing camaraderie they have for one and other.

We have a rigorous curriculum and we recognize there are just some times when we need to have fun.   So, whether competing together on one of our teams, cheering on the players as a member of the BaratCudas, dancing the night away at one of our dances or just hanging out in one of the student commons area, there are plenty of opportunities for our students to get together and just have fun while build lasting friendships.
