Regina Academies – Part of the National Return to Classical Education

Answering the call from St. John Paul II to join the New Evangelization, the Regina Academies were founded in 2003 by laity who recognized the distinctive merits of Catholic classical education – the same education that produced some of the greatest minds in Western Civilization. Through the stages of the Trivium (grammar, logic, rhetoric), students are challenged to achieve their academic potential as they become the thinkers and articulate leaders of the future!

They are inspired to learn from dedicated and outstanding teachers who serve as role models. At the Regina Academies, the teaching that beauty, truth and wisdom are an important part of the curriculum is integrated with the Teachings of the Catholic faith.

Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia agrees and he expresses those sentiments again with a special urgency for the revival of Catholic Education in his new book Strangers in a Strange Land (2017).

The courses offered provide the students with the tools for learning to enable them to acquire knowledge and critical thinking skills, developing them into lifelong learners and impacting them as future leaders.  Visit our websites, talk to our parents and Headmasters and find out why the Regina Academies are making a difference.
