For the first time in many years the First Day of School will have a different vibe in my house.

This year as a Sacred Heart community, we will celebrate the bicentennial year by honoring St. Rose Philippine Duchesne's perseverance and tenacity. In 1818, she arrived for the first time in America with four other Religious of the Sacred Heart. They landed on the shores of Louisiana after a 70 day journey across the Atlantic from Grenoble, France. Her dream to bring Sacred Heart education to America was achieved because of her courage and confidence. It took a personal and active faith in God for her to trust that God would provide the strength needed to face a new frontier.
Our Regis School community has faced similar challenges as we live the five goals of a Sacred Heart education. Our mission calls for us to challenge boys as they develop their faith and intellectual fortitude. Along with developing their minds and hearts, they are also called on to serve others who are in need. Building a community rooted in these values encourages boys toward maturity as scholars and gentlemen.
This special bicentennial year will be an opportunity to explore the frontiers of curriculum growth with new initiatives around math, science, technology, and our expanding STEAM and Makerspace programs. Designing new class schedules, discovering new leadership qualities, and practicing athletic skills, all challenge boys to build the qualities of persistence and courage.
St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, RSCJ reminded us that, “It is the gift of the heart that God wants.” The Regis School of the Sacred Heart is rooted in a spirituality of the heart. Come experience how leading with the heart creates boys of character and faith.
