EIGHT HOUSES. ONE HOME.
Bishop Lynch High School launched the BL House System in August 2019 to promote leadership, mentorship, camaraderie, and connectedness on campus. Since Bishop Lynch is a Dominican school, each house is named after a Dominican saint or blessed.
The house system has eight houses led by faculty/staff deans and elected student leaders, and each house has six mentor groups, each led by a faculty/staff mentor and elected student leaders. A house director leads the entire system and regularly meets with the deans and student leaders.
Students are members of the same house and mentor group for their entire Friar high school journey. Immediate family members are placed in the same house, but in different mentor groups.
Each mentor group consists of freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors so younger students can learn from older students and older students can mentor younger students. Mentor groups have between 20-22 students.
Home. all friars.
Dominican Cup Champions, Ricci House
The House System fosters a competitive spirit throughout the year as students strive to win the Dominican Cup. BL's Dominican Cup is awarded at the end of each year to the House that receives the most points from academic, athletic, artistic, and service events. Point opportunities include House Day activities, dress-down days, attending home athletic events and art performances, mentor group vs. mentor group challenges, the November canned food drive, and so much more!
Congratulations to our back-to-back winners of the Dominican Cup, RICCI HOUSE!
