With our facilities and spacious grounds, many people think our campus has the feel of a small college.

  • Our Unique Model

    Regis Jesuit High School provides a single-gender educational experience by operating as two entities—the Boys Division and the Girls Division. Each has its own division head who reports to one principal responsible for overseeing programming for the entire school. The school's administrative team—the Educational Leadership Council or ELC—is comprised of the division heads and several assistant principals who work collectively and collaboratively with the principal to ensure that both academic and affective programming is delivered campus-wide with equity and efficacy for all students. As such Regis Jesuit is able to provide its students with the best of both worlds—a primarily single-gender academic environment inside the classroom with numerous opportunities for students to collaborate, serve, pray, study and socialize together on a shared campus.

    Regis Jesuit prepares its students to excel in college and beyond by developing their abilities to think critically and succeed on their own. In addition, students have all of the advantages of co-educational interaction without the social pressures in the classroom. With the boys and girls in separate classrooms for the majority of their instruction, students have a choice of when and how they socialize during break times, at lunch and before and after the school day ends.
  • Our History

    Regis Jesuit High School traces its origins to Las Vegas College and was founded in 1877 in Las Vegas, New Mexico by Jesuits from Naples, Italy. In 1884, the Jesuits opened a second school in Morrison, Colorado. At the invitation of J.P. Machebeuf, then bishop of Denver, four years later, the Las Vegas and Morrison schools were merged into the College of the Sacred Heart—which later became Regis College and then Regis University—and moved to West 52nd Avenue and Lowell Boulevard in northwest Denver.
