Each house includes students from all four grades who remain housemates throughout their time at CHS.
Once each quarter, the House Games bring on fun and friendly competition in everything from tug-of-war to chess to football.
Based on house systems used around the world for centuries, ours is guided by the Jesuit hallmark of cura personalis – care for the whole person.
Students can earn points for their house through academic achievemen; participation in service, clubs and athletics; and the House Games.
Each house bears the name of a prominent Jesuit and has its own distinctive color and shield.
“When Canisius says we are Men for Others, they really mean it. It's truly a brotherhood.”

“As a young man, Canisius makes an impression on you, and it stays with you.”
“The brotherhood in this school in specific was the most impactful to me. I was blessed to be at this school.”
“I believe a major underpinning of my life has been the time I spent at Canisius. It has had a tremendous impact.”
“Canisius, you’re different; I thank you for that. I wish I could bottle up your magic and spread it outside the Blue Doors.”
“From day one at Canisius, students were expected to excel and I carried that into college and throughout my career.”
