About Regis High School
Founded in 1914 by an anonymous benefactor and supported by the generosity of her family, its alumni and friends, Regis High School offers tuition-free Jesuit college preparatory education to Roman Catholic young men from the New York metropolitan area who demonstrate superior intellectual and leadership potential. In the admissions process, special consideration is given to those who cannot otherwise afford a Catholic education. Regis High School remains the only all-scholarship Catholic secondary school in the country.
As a Jesuit school, Regis is committed to both academic excellence and fostering a spirit of generosity and service to those in need. With an emphasis on academic rigor and Catholic formation, the school's program is designed to promote each student's intellectual and spiritual growth grounded in a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ. Regis seeks to inspire and train the ethnically diverse young men in its care to become imaginative leaders committed to promoting justice and exerting leadership in the Church, in the civic community, and in their chosen profession.
In 2002, Regis founded the REACH Program to further enhance its mission. REACH (Recruiting Excellence in Academics for Catholic High Schools) serves middle school boys in the New York City area who are Catholic, who are academically gifted and have leadership potential, and whose families demonstrate financial need. Designed as a three-year educational and leadership program, REACH prepares students to compete for scholarships at Regis, as well as at other top Catholic high schools in New York City.
