The Regents Name

The definition of a ‘regent’ is “one who rules or administers during the absence of a sovereign.” In the biblical creation record (Genesis 1:26-28), God made man in his image to have dominion over the earth. As believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we understand that we are not the sovereign ones, but we are waiting and in active service until our Sovereign returns. We are the Lord’s regents and as such we are to be responsible caretakers and rulers over all that he has placed in our hands, including our intellectual and spiritual gifts and responsibilities. Thus, the school is for regents, and it is our prayer that the education provided by Regents School of Austin will help prepare our children for this undertaking.

Coram Deo

The motto for Regents is the Latin phrase Coram Deo, which means “before the face of God” or “in the presence of God.” This short, profound phrase, coined during the Reformation, conveys the essence of what it means to follow Christ the Lord in the totality of our lives. We are to live “before the face of God, under the authority of God, to the glory of God.” We desire to match every aspect of Regents to this all-encompassing principle.

Our Crest

The crest within Regents Traditional Seal is the symbollic heart of the school.  It contains a set of images that represent key elements of Regents' values, traditions, and aspirations.  The crest has four quadrants divided by a cross, with each quadrant identifying a unique aspect of Christian life.

Veritas (Truth):  The Bible and the lamp symbolizes truth which lies in scripture.  In John 8:32, Jesus says that true disciples abide in His Word, and that "you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

Reverentia (Reverence):  The hands folded and raised in prayer portray reverence, awe, and adoration.  As we behold the majesty of God, our response is worship, love, and devotion.

Ministerium (Ministry): The hands extending the basket of loaves and fishes depicts ministry or service.  Our worship, love and devotion to God are completed as are evidenced in our words and deeds.

Fiducia (Faith/Trust): The anchor in the midst of turbulent waters represent faith and trust.  This faith is the act of trust by which our hearts and minds embrace, believe, and personally rest upon Christ for salvation.
