Guest Blog Post – The "Why" Behind Our Welcome Wednesday

Throughout this school year, we will feature guest bloggers to share different perspectives on or experiences with boys education on our Head of School blog. Our next guest blogger is Sarah Davenport, Regis' Director of Admissions. Sarah dives deep into the importance of visiting our campus to gain insight into The Regis Experience.

Finding the “best fit” for your child’s academic career can be overwhelming – in the independent school arena, there are recommendation and testing submissions, application deadlines, shadow days, interviews, and the list could go on and on. As an Admissions team, we understand that maximizing our time with you is what will help determine “best fit” for your family. One way in which we do this at Regis is by hosting Welcome Wednesdays throughout the fall and winter months! We are thrilled to welcome you onto our campus and hear about your interests for your son. We want to introduce you to our Knightly Ambassadors and Parent Ambassador Network all while touring you around our beautiful and authentic, boy-centered campus. To start your morning, you will enjoy a welcome from our Head of School, Mr. Dennis Phillips, as well as hear from a panel of our students as they share The Regis Experience with you.

On Welcome Wednesdays, we open the doors to our Early Childhood, Lower School and Middle School classrooms to highlight the learning journey of our young scholars. Spending the morning on campus will give you a glimpse of Regis’ best practices in regard to boys’ education. You may see our active learning furniture in action or our students playing ping pong with their teachers at break. Perhaps you’ll see our middle school students engineering a project with our 3D printer or maybe you’ll be lucky enough to peek into the world of a Pre-K MakerSpace class. One thing is for certain—you'll be able to engage in one-on-one conversations with our students about their experience at Regis.

We encourage you to attend a Welcome Wednesday, as our time together is more personalized than a larger Open House—we tailor our small group conversation and tour to your individual needs and interests. Get a jump start on the admissions process and join us for Wednesday morning this fall! Be sure to bring your questions just in case our tour checklist doesn’t cover all that you desire to know about The Regis School of the Sacred Heart.

We believe in admitting mission-fit students and families who are in search of a robust Catholic education for boys of all faiths. We hope you will inquire about becoming a Regis Knight—sign up for a Welcome Wednesday today!
