program, named in honor of Carol and Bobby Henderson, the founders of Westminster School of Nashville, the predecessor school to Currey Ingram Academy.
The purpose of the Henderson House program is to unify our K-12 community and to instill school pride and spirit. Each student, teacher, and staff member is been assigned to one of four houses—Edmiston, Hay, Hardeman, and McCutchen. According to Beechville-Then, Now and In Between, the tax records from early 1800s associated with the current Currey Ingram property belonged to these four landowners: Samuel Edmiston, William Hay, Thomas Hardeman, and Samual McCutchen. We have named our houses after these families to honor our history.
The House System is a long-held tradition at many schools (think Harry Potter). Students across all grade levels participate in a variety of academic, arts, athletic and community-building activities to earn points for their house. Each house will have two faculty/staff members and a student representative from each division to serve as house leaders. The houses will have their own colors, slogan and symbol. At the conclusion of the school year, the house with the most total points will receive the coveted Henderson House Cup, which will be displayed in Jennifer and Billy Frist Hall.
