Mission

We are Regis Jesuit

A Catholic, Jesuit School for the Modern World

“But someone will say, ‘You have faith; I have deeds.’ Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.” - James 2: 18

Recognizing that divisive rhetoric permeates nearly every interaction around the social and cultural issues of the day, we engage our community of students, teachers and families in dialogue about how to move the conversation away from an “either/or” mentality to developing a productive, nuanced understanding of our complex and increasingly interconnected world. We believe that our mission as a Catholic, Jesuit school and our subsequent way of proceeding, informed by our Ignatian charism and Catholic Social Teaching, provide a hopeful way through these turbulent times. This path honors the dignity of each individual person, while simultaneously working to repair the frayed fabric of the larger world community. We have found solace in the lessons carried forward for us by others, many taught during similarly challenging times.

We invite you to read more below about our way of proceeding and how to engage and learn more about Regis Jesuit and our efforts to form Men and Women with and for Others.

  • Our Way of Proceeding

    We at Regis Jesuit join the faithful around the world in teaching and living the tenets of Catholic Social Teaching that call us to love of neighbor and upholding the dignity of all human life.

    We at Regis Jesuit join our global Jesuit educational family in embracing a Faith that Lives Justice that presupposes the goodness in all people and calls us to work in solidarity with each other to lift up the most vulnerable among us. 

    We at Regis Jesuit are a community that embraces reconciliation and hope for a brighter and more just future by centering ourselves on the life of Jesus Christ as our model as we endeavor to be truth-seekers guided by the Holy Spirit. 

    We at Regis Jesuit are engaged in the formation of young people who are participating in a complex and interconnected world. Our responsibility is to move the dialogue beyond the two-dimensional constructs of the current day that tend to frame every debate as ‘either/or’ or a ‘zero-sum game.’ Instead, we are called to create environments in which our students may encounter and engage multiple points of view that are presented thoughtfully and respectfully. 

    We do not tell our students what to think; we teach them how to think and how to discern with an informed conscience.

    To ensure this way of proceeding remains intact, we commit to further examination of our messaging as a school community through a discerning lens. We are implementing further ongoing professional development for our faculty and staff centered around creating spaces and dialogues that honor diverse viewpoints and teach students to listen, discern and civilly participate in challenging conversations. We will further strengthen our formation especially as it relates to Catholic Social Teaching and will continue to uphold the life of Jesus Christ and those of the saints as the models of a life well-lived.
  • Our Invitation to Engagement

    We invite you to join us in seeking encounter and reconciliation with God, with one another and in our world, In good faith. We encourage all to engage with our Catholic, Jesuit mission and values stated on this website. We also welcome all to come spend time with us on our campus and see these remarkable young people in action—to hear their stories as they continue to seek to dedicate their thoughts, words and actions to the greater glory of God. 

    We humbly ask that you keep us in your prayers as we keep you in ours.

  • For the Greater Glory of God

    Tracing its origins to the founding of Las Vegas College in New Mexico in 1877, Regis Jesuit High School’s model is rooted in the nearly 500-year-old tradition of Jesuit education throughout the world, but innovative in its structure and vision.

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.
Regis Jesuit’s educational philosophy is based around the concept of cura personalis—the care for the individual—and striving for the magis—the qualitative more—in all that we do with the goal of forming Men and Women with and for Others who dedicate all their efforts to the greater glory of God.
