One of the strongest assets at Regis is our small class size, ensuring that all of our students will receive personal attention in their studies. Our maximum class size is 12 boys per class at our 3-PreKindergarten level, 14 boys per class at our 4-PreKindergarten and Kindergarten levels, and 16 boys per class in grades one to eight.
Regis boys go on to have great success in high school and beyond. In 2011, 50% of our graduates received academic scholarships to prestigious private high schools and more than 50% of the graduating class qualified for nomination to Duke University’s Talent Identification Program, open only to students who score well above average in standardized testing.

Yes. Please refer to our Tuition and Financial Assistance section. A Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) application is required and due March 1.
All admission decisions are made on a need-blind basis, meaning that the admission decision is made independently of the family’s request for financial assistance.
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.
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.
