Head of School

Dennis Phillips, Head of School at The Regis School of the Sacred Heart

Welcome to Regis!

This is the greeting you’ll receive from a Regis boy when you visit our campus. That greeting could come from a kindergarten boy or an 8th grader as he shakes your hand and graciously holds the door open for you as you walk through the entry to our campus.

As you explore our website, I encourage you to discover what we call “The Regis Experience.” For every Regis boy, the journey begins when he learns and lives the five Goals of Sacred Heart Education. The Goals are a roadmap for boys as they strive to develop who they are and what they can become.

We teach the whole-boy in an atmosphere that supports Gospel values and innovative academic principles. In today’s constantly changing academic and social landscape, a boy must navigate a rich terrain of digital tools and global perspectives.  Opportunities to demonstrate integrity and responsibility are found around every corner for our students. Our Regis community is constantly engaged in serving others while empowering every boy to find his unique voice.

The remarkable story of Sacred Heart Education—which began over 200 years ago—continues to offer boys the skills needed in today’s modern world. Regis boys are leaders when they follow the words of our foundress, St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, RSCJ, “Be humble, be simple, and bring joy to others.”

Welcome to Regis!

If we all stop for a moment and think back to Thanksgivings of the past, you might not remember much that was distinctive. I’d guess family travel plans mixed in with two or three traditional dinner gatherings throughout the weekend was probably the order of the day. During my growing years, this was the holiday when the extra tables and chairs had to be dusted off from the basement storage room and brought up to be added to the dining room table. Then, one of my siblings had to pull the table leaves out of the bedroom closet so we could extend the table to fit all the relatives. Thanksgiving has always been about making room for more. More chairs, more people, more football, and of course, more food. Pile on the mashed potatoes, extend the visit, increase the dessert list. Have Uncle Ned say an extra-long prayer of gratitude for all the gifts we have at our disposal. Then just around seven or eight o’clock, we’d all grow drowsy because of that funny nutrient in turkey called tryptophan. We ate too much.
