Our Vision

Regis Jesuit aims to form a community of individuals who embody the school’s mission and values by being Open to Growth, Intellectually Competent, Religious, Loving and Committed to Doing Justice.

OPEN TO GROWTH

Regis Jesuit graduates have the maturity to take responsibility for their own actions and growth. Graduates know that learning is a life-long process of intellectual, spiritual, and personal development. Graduates understand that having experiences outside of their worldview are important to their development.

INTELLECTUALLY COMPETENT

Regis Jesuit graduates master those academic requirements necessary for advancing their formal education and skillfully using the fundamental tools of learning. Moreover, graduates realize the need to practice intellectual integrity.

RELIGIOUS

Regis Jesuit graduates, through study of the Roman Catholic faith, will come to know and experience God as one who understands and loves them completely and is there for them through their suffering and joy. Graduates have a deep understanding of and respect for their own religious traditions and those of others. They also have a strong foundation in personal prayer, spirituality, moral conscience and religious conviction. They seek to know God by proclaiming and responding to His love through the scriptures and especially through Jesus Christ in the Gospels and the Holy Spirit in prayer and in daily life.

LOVING

Regis Jesuit graduates move beyond self-interest and self-centeredness. They are confident and seek deeper levels of relationships in which one can disclose feelings, accept the mystery of another person, and cherish that person. They experience God’s love and respond by loving self, family, friends, members of the school community, the poor and the suffering as people of God. They understand that love gives witness to faith and speaks out through action and service on behalf of a world community for justice, love and peace.

COMMITTED TO DOING JUSTICE

Regis Jesuit graduates acquire the awareness, skills and motivation necessary to live as Men and Women with and for Others who are leaders through service in imitation of Christ Jesus. Graduates are committed to justice that is grounded in the knowledge of the roots of injustice in social institutions, attitudes and customs and understand the values of a consumer society can be in conflict with the demands of a just society and the Gospel. They express their empathy for others and a commitment to doing justice by voluntarily engaging in service.
