Since 1914 Regis has been serving Catholic young men from the New York metropolitan area, and providing them with a tuition-free Jesuit education. Our Foundress and her family supported the school as their personal charity for the first half century of our existence, and since then we have been able to continue to provide full scholarships to all our students through the remarkable generosity of our alumni, parents and friends.
The admissions standards are rigorous. We look for candidates who demonstrate superior intellectual and leadership potential, and in the admissions process we give preference to those who would not otherwise be able to afford a Catholic education.
Our students come from all five boroughs of New York, as well as Long Island, New Jersey, Connecticut and Westchester. In the 2019-2020 school year, our 530 students come from 243 zip codes, and the average commute to Regis from home is 65 minutes each way. The diversity at the school is reflected not only in the geographic distribution, but also in racial and socio-economic backgrounds of our students.
While the academic load is demanding, students make life-long friends and develop deep bonds with the school for the rest of their lives. Regis changes our students’ lives.
We invite you to learn more about us as you peruse our website. If you think Regis might be the school that is right for you, please pay careful attention to the Admissions pages.
As we move into our second century, we continue to form Men for Others in the Jesuit tradition. The experience at Regis High School is unlike any other, and the opportunity to study here continues to be a gift given to our students and their families.
