Focus On Regis High School

by NYC Firm Schools on February 24, 2011

Regis High School got its start in 1914 when an anonymous benefactor offered the seed money. Following the Jesuit tradition, Regis offers tuition free college preparation for high school boys.

The focus at Regis High School is on academics and religious formation in the Catholic tradition. Academics follows the traditional liberal arts curriculum.

Required courses include:

  • 4 years of English
  • 4 years of Theology
  • 3 years of Social Studies
  • Foreign Language
  • Math
  • Science
  • Fine Arts
  • 2 years of Computer Technology
  • 1 year of Speech/Writing

Faculty believe that education is more than just an accumulation of facts and try to stimulate the minds of its students and develop critical thinking skills.

Athletics is also an important aspect of campus life at Regis High School and boys have a good selection of sports to choose from.

Moving beyond academics, Regis High School students have an active student life with many extracurricular activities. Extracurricular activities provide the following benefits:

  • Deepen skills not acquired through academics or expand academic skills in ways that can’t be done in the classroom
  • Pursue excellence and achieve distinction
  • Develop a sense of community
  • Fosters friendships
  • Students form friendships with students from other schools

Junior high school students who are preparing for high school have a chance to compete for scholarships and be mentored through the REACH program at Regis.

Regis High School does not seek to force a faith on students. Faculty asks students to understand the Christian faith, but allow them to grow into faith on their own.
