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!

It seems everywhere we turn these last four months, we feel the ground shifting under our feet. I harken back to my study of physical geography and the theory of plate tectonics and think, ‘we are living the billion year tectonic shift in a matter of months.’ I’m sure many of us feel the last four months have been an experience of ground-shifting on speed dial. I like the constancy of terra firma—dry land that feels immovable and certain, so that a ‘walk in the park’ is just that—peaceful, calming and nourishing to our souls. Uncertainty is the consistent theme in 2020, and the times are calling for change, and we don’t have the option to not change.
