House Spotlight

House of St. Maximilian

At GACC the 7-12 grades are divided into a house system.  There are a total of four houses that include students from every grade.  Each house is responsible for coming up with a name, which as you will notice is a name of a Saint.  The houses are also responsible for creating a crest symbol that represents their cause.  Students participate in house competitions throughout the school year and receive points for activities. Houses also participate in several service projects throughout the year that serve the school, church, and community.  

 

Spotlight #2: House of Maximilian

 

Saint: Maximilian Kolbe 

He was a great saint who gave up his life to save another prisoner at Auschwitz. His actions portrayed the same love that Jesus has for all of us.

 

Motto:

The center of Maximilian Kolbe's mission was to spread the Christian faith with all those he encountered. We are carrying on his mission by spreading our Christian faith through our actions and service to others. 

 

Crest Symbols:

Hands holding a heart symbolizes service and work for the good of all people. 

People holding hands symbolizes family and that we are all united as one. 

The cross stands for our Christian faith. 

The tree stands for knowledge, in which we are always growing and maturing.

 

House Projects:

Our Advent project was raising money for Fr. Francis' school in Uganda. We volunteered to help set up Family Fun Day and raked leaves at the convent. Many students donated blood at the local blood drives. We worked concessions stands for home games. A handful of students also volunteered to help a family work their haunted house in October.
