The House System
The House System is a tradition at Bryn Mawr that brings the entire school together for fun, spirit, and competition.
So, how does it work? Yes, it's sort of like Harry Potter. Every student from the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools, as well as faculty and staff, belong to one of five houses named after five icons of Bryn Mawr: Daisies, Suns, Stars, Moons, and Owls. Upper School students are selected as leaders for each house and help organize the activities and fun throughout the year, including an all-campus flower planting, friendly dodgeball games, karaoke, and of course, dance parties. With cheers and gear for each house, the program raises pride, spirit, and camaraderie across campus.
One of the best parts of the House System is how it allows Bryn Mawr’s younger students to get to know the older girls and have someone to look up to, while our Middle and Upper Schoolers are getting a chance to be real leaders and role models.
