The six Houses in the system are named after now-closed, historical Catholic schools in and around Columbus to honor their legacy. Aquinas House is named after Aquinas College High School, staffed by the Dominican Order. Rosary House is named for Holy Rosary Roman Catholic High School and Parish. Sacred Heart House is named for the Sacred Heart School and Parish, offering grades 1–12 and staffed by Dominican Sisters. The Springs House is named for St. Mary’s of the Springs, an academy for young women in the late 1800’s before it moved to Columbus, and eventually became Ohio Dominican University. Our Lady of Victory House is named after the former school and current church in downtown Columbus. Wehrle House is named after Father Wehrle High School on the Southside of Columbus.
Aquinas House is amazing in their spirit and participation in big events. Every student participates each year in both the Christmas Carol competition and Glee, and we have a heavy showing for the Tug of War activities in the House Olympics.
