History of Regis

At its founding in 1991, The Regis School of the Sacred Heart became the first and only 3 Pre-K through eighth grade all-boys independent Sacred Heart school in the Houston area, fulfilling a need in the city’s Catholic community. With the guidance of Archbishop Joseph Fiorenza and the approval of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, Regis’ founding families created a unique educational environment for their sons, simultaneously grounded in rigorous academics and the five Sacred Heart Goals. Regis opened with thirty-eight students and has grown over the past thirty years to its current size of 250.

As a member of the Network of Sacred Heart Schools, Regis is one of 25 Sacred Heart schools across the United States and Canada and one of more than 150 schools around the world. Sacred Heart schools are dedicated to the values of Christian education articulated more than 200 years ago by St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, foundress of the Society of the Sacred Heart. The Sacred Heart Goals shape not only curriculum development, but also teaching practices, character education and spiritual development.
