Academics

Regis Jesuit High School offers a college-preparatory curriculum with a strong emphasis on the development of leadership, service and religious faith. In past years more than 98 percent of our graduates have been accepted at colleges and universities throughout the country.
It is possible for academically qualified students at Regis Jesuit to earn college credit through the Advancement Placement testing program. There are more than 20 AP classes offered and honors sections exist in most departments. Incoming freshmen are eligible to place into advanced math courses, advanced foreign language, Honors English and Honors Biology.

Regis Jesuit has an alternating day block schedule with a total of eight periods offered over a two-day sequence. Students must be enrolled in at least seven courses each semester. The eighth period is used for students to participate in the advisory program, student activities, religious services and other pastoral and enrichment activities. There are no study halls in a student's schedule, but there is time allotted in the schedule most days for students to seek academic support from their teachers.

Additionally, all students participate in the pastoral retreat program each year and are required to complete the yearly community service program, including participating in a two-week Service Project held during the winter of the junior and senior years. Seniors also are required to complete a Capstone Project.
