DO YOU HAVE TO BE CATHOLIC TO ATTEND REGINA?
Regina Catholic Education Center welcomes students of any religious, racial, ethnic, cultural, and social demographic to enroll. We are many parts, we are all one body. All are welcome within our community.
HOW CAN I AFFORD CATHOLIC SCHOOL?
Regina and the greater Catholic community provide opportunities to ensure Regina can be affordable for most families. We are appreciative to receive support from our four local parishes and tuition assistance through the School Tuition Organization (STO) in our area. The Regina Foundation also offers scholarships. Families are expected to pay in relation to their economic circumstances. Don’t hesitate to ask for assistance, we are here to help you make the right choice for your family.
WHERE IS REGINA IN DEVELOPING 21ST CENTURY TECHNOLOGY SKILLS WITH THEIR STUDENTS?
Regina has a wealth of technology available from our youngest learners through our high school students. Every classroom has a SMART Board.
We host a mobile iPad lab for our elementary classes, in addition to weekly computer classes.
Regina has two up-to-date computer labs in the Jr./Sr/ High School, as well as a mobile lab. In preparing our students for college, we offer online classes, so our students can work globally with others in a collaborative setting.
WHAT DOES REGINA DO FOR STEM CLASSES?
Regina leads our students in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics with Project Lead the Way and Gateway to Technology. These are activity-oriented programs designed to challenge and engage the natural curiosity and imagination of middle school and high school students. Taught in conjunction with a rigorous academic curriculum, the program is divided into six independent units. More information about the program is available at http://pltw.org.
WHAT IS REGINA’S DRESS CODE?
Land’s End supplies Regina’s school uniforms. Tops are required to be purchased from Land’s End but bottoms can be from any retailer provided they meet guidelines. In addition to daily uniforms, grades 7-12 wear a physical education uniform (shorts and t-shirt) that can be purchased on Prep Day.
HOW WILL I KNOW MY CHILD’S ROOM ASSIGNMENTS?
In elementary school, there are generally three sections of each grade level. Every classroom is led by a fully certified teacher. Room assignments are generated at random; done by our excellent administrative team. In Jr./Sr. high students and the guidance counselors work together to meet the needs of the individual students. Parents sign off on their student’s schedule and conferences are available if needed.

HOW DO I FIND OUT WHAT IS HAPPENING AT REGINA?
Regina administrators send electronically a monthly newsletter to parents of Elementary students, while parents of Jr./Sr. High students can sign up for this option. Hard copies are available upon a parent request. A daily email is sent out to all parents called The Daily Regal. You will also receive email from your child’s teachers. Regina prides itself with teacher and parent contact. This frequent communication leads to a positive educational experience for all of us. Whatever questions you might have, big or small, should be asked as soon as it presents itself.
HOW DO I GET INVOLVED AS A REGINA PARENT?
Regina has plenty of opportunities for parental involvement from Home and School, Booster Club, PISA (fine arts), volunteering and athletics. Parents are also able to have lunch with their son/daughter and of course are always invited to our school masses and prayer services.
