The College operates a House system with vertical whānau groups, comprised of students from Year 7-13, in each House. The four Houses are named after significant members of the Marist story:
Colin House - named after Father Jean Claude Colin, the founder of the Marist family and in particular the Society of Mary - Marist Fathers and Brothers (sm).
Champagnat House - named after Saint Marcellin Champagnat. He was one of the original group who wished to form the Society of Mary. He founded the Marist Brothers of the Schools (fms).
Chavoin House - named after Jeanne Marie Chavoin who with Jean-Claude Colin founded the congregation of the Marist Sisters in 1823. An international congregation, the first community in New Zealand was established at Mount Albert in 1927.
Chanel House - named after Saint Peter Chanel who was part of the first group of Marist Fathers and Brothers who came out to the Pacific in 1836 as Missionaries. He accompanied Bishop Pompallier. St Peter Chanel is the patron saint of New Zealand.
