Life After Regis

Life after Regis

As our boys have flourished at Regis, we have seen them develop into engaged, collaborative learners who are well equipped to face the challenges of Houston’s academically challenging high schools.  Regis’ focus on cultivating faithful young men who care for others and have a love for learning is the perfect recipe for developing leaders for the 21st century.  Current and Alumni parent

Regis families benefit from a thoughtful, thorough and supportive high school admissions process. Throughout the process, emphasis is placed on helping students find the school that is the best fit for them. As a result, our students make school choices that reflect their individual interests, learning styles and ambitions.

High School Admissions Process

Regis supports families in multiple ways throughout the high school admissions process. In early September, the Middle School Division Head and Dean of Students meet with all parents to provide an overview of the high school admissions process including important deadlines and tips for success.

High School Placement Tests (HSPT/ISEE)

Throughout the first semester of eighth grade, Regis faculty offer a test preparation course for all interested students. The course is typically held on Saturday mornings throughout the fall. In December, Regis sponsors a practice high school entrance test during the school day for all eighth grade students.

Interview

As requested, the Regis Director of Admissions meets with eighth grade students to discuss and prepare for the high school admissions interview.

Application

Regis faculty and administrators complete recommendation forms as requested, and the Regis registrar submits all recommendations and transcripts to the prospective high schools on behalf of the Regis students.

Discerning the Right Fit

Regis students are encouraged to visit local high schools and participate in open houses and shadow days. As a class, students also participate in group tours offered and invited by local high schools. Regis eighth grade students also have an opportunity to speak with recent Regis graduates to learn tips for making a successful transition from Regis to high school.

Regis did a great job in assisting my classmates and me throughout the high school application process.  Not only were we better prepared for high school, but we all got into the school of our choice.
