The House system was born out of the need to improve collaboration and comradery among students, establish closer mentorship relationships, and provide a more systematic way to deliver Character Education. Each student will be assigned to a House when he/she enters 1st grade, and will remain in that house throughout his/her AST experience. Siblings, and eventually, sons and daughters of alumni, will be assigned to the same house whenever possible to establish legacy. Although the 12 houses are the same from Pre- School through High School, each division will meet separately for most of the weekly activities, allowing for mixed-division activities during key times in the year. The house members will bond and grow closer, as they complete various initiatives and bonding games, participate in fun competitive activities, and try to gain the most points for their house by the end of the year.
