About the Regina Academies:
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 their academic potential! 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. The courses offered provide the students with the tools for learning to enable them to acquire knowledge and critical thinking skills, developing them into life long learners and impacting them as future leaders.
