We unite four houses under one roof.
Launched in the 2017–18 school year, the House System provides a platform to foster strong bonds between students and adult mentors, promote school spirit and camaraderie, and drive healthy competition among young men. With origins in all-boys Catholic boarding schools, the House System is widely used at many Marianist high schools across the country. A student is a member of one House throughout his time at Riordan.
Led by a Mentor Teacher, Mentor Groups of 24 students meet each week during the school day. These groups serve to foster inter-division unity and school spirit, with fun activities and practical advice about maximizing your high school years.
There are more leadership roles than ever for students on Student Parliament, the body that organizes House events throughout the year.
Houses compete throughout the year in a variety of academic, athletic, and team-building activities to earn points towards the coveted “Chaminade Cup,” a perpetual award given to the House with the most cumulative points.
