What is Regis’ philosophy on diversity?

We do require that all applicants be boys! Otherwise, Regis welcomes all qualified individuals from many diverse backgrounds. The Regis School does not discriminate in admissions or educational programs on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, or religion.

Is there a dress code?

Yes. Regis students have two required uniforms: a regular uniform for daily wear and a dress uniform for all Liturgies and other special occasions.

We feel that a dress code has a unifying effect within our student body. It is a way to encourage the feeling of being one community - all sharing similar goals, purposes, and even attire.

Are there opportunities for Regis boys to interact with girls?

Yes. Throughout the year, we offer organized social and service events with our sister school, the Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart.

Does my family need to be Catholic to apply?

Regis accepts and welcomes families of all faith denominations. As a Sacred Heart school, we encourage our students to understand the many world religions while still being expressly Catholic in our instruction and outlook.

What makes Regis a Sacred Heart school?

Sacred Heart schools are a network of independent Catholic schools guided by the global vision of St. Madeleine Sophie Barat. They all share in the educational mission of the Society, to promote and stimulate creative education, spirituality, and leadership.

Sacred Heart schools are not connected with any particular parish. Each school is organized independently and is run as a non-profit entity.
