The Regis community plays an integral role in forming boys of character. The Regis Experience is about supporting boys as they develop and grow in leadership from 3 Pre-K through eighth grade. By focusing on a more specific age group, our knowledgeable faculty is better able to tailor our program especially for these students.
At Regis, sixth through eighth grade students are not lost in the middle between elementary school and high school. They are the student role models and leaders of our school. Regis middle school is about supporting boys in their executive functioning skills with a boy-friendly atmosphere that challenges and encourages learning through mistakes, trial and error, and grit.
The Regis eighth grade graduate is well prepared when it comes time to choose a new school community. High school placement at Regis focuses on the gifts boys develop throughout their years in the early childhood and lower school programs. Boys who join us midway through the elementary years also integrate well with our community and embrace their social and emotional skills.
Many of our graduates are ready to embrace a new learning community when they finish their Regis Experience. Because of the opportunities available in a small school setting, Regis students have developed leadership skills, a good sense of their strengths, and have learned how to self-advocate – all abilities that will serve them well as they move to the high school level.
Regis boys are challenged to take personal responsibility for their work and conduct every day as called for in Sacred Heart Goal V (personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom). Once students graduate, they are well on the way toward making wise decisions. The Regis Experience creates a solid foundation for students as they move on to high school.
