How is our Single-Gender Model Different?
The school was established as an all-boys institution in 1877 and existed as such for more than 125 years. In 2003, at the urging of parents who sought the same rigorous Jesuit education for their daughters, Regis Jesuit expanded the school campus to accept girls. We are only the second Jesuit school in the world to offer an all-girls education (the other is in the Philippines) and the only Jesuit school in the country offering single-gender instruction to both young men and young women.
Part of a global network of Jesuit schools including more than 80 Jesuit pre-secondary and secondary institutions in North America and 27 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, Regis Jesuit provides a Catholic, college preparatory education and fosters a Christ-centered community for formation and growth. We aspire to build a school community representative of the larger community in which we serve—ethnically, culturally and socio-economically—and in which adolescents can more deeply discover themselves, the world and God in an environment that is challenging, nurturing, safe, supportive and conducive to growth.
