About the different houses


Codam has three houses (Cetus, Vela, and Pyxis) that each student is randomly sorted into at the start of their study. These houses, also called Coalitions, compete against one another throughout the year for the title of House of the Year.

Each student can earn points for their coalition by being an active member in the community. Validating projects, evaluating peers, and helping out around the school are a few of the many activities that reward students with points that go towards their coalition.
