A Word from the Head

On behalf of the entire Regents School of Austin community, welcome to our website and thank you for visiting. Our website serves an important function for our school community with regular news and scheduling updates found on the other side of our community login. And for those of you learning about Regents School of Austin for the first time or seeking to learn more, the second function of our website is to help you understand our story and our distinctives.

Founded in 1992 with 17 students, Regents believes in a Christ-centered education for the whole person, flourishing throughout childhood and into adulthood. We call this classical Christian. Along our journey, the school has grown under the careful care of our community to an 82 acre campus with over 1000 students.

Every parent desires the best education possible for their children.  Our motor lab addresses focus on the entire young body and soul as we guide the efforts of the mind. Our academics challenge the mind, resulting in prepared students who achieve strong Advanced Placement scores and high SAT/ACT scores. Our Senior Thesis program is the capstone of the Regents educational experience and we invite you to learn more. But if you ask our faculty and staff, the true joy at Regents is growth of the student’s character and spiritual formation. This happens along the way through careful readings of ancient wisdom expanding our moral and spiritual capacities, through caring teachers shepherding hearts and minds, through ministeriums where students experience hands on the joy of serving others, and through our wonderful co-curriculars providing ample opportunity for growth in discipleship, love, passion, attitude, poise, and focus.

Our Regents Parents Council is our biggest asset at Regents. Our parents come together and provide countless hours of volunteering. These hours create a partnership within our parent/teacher community resulting in incredible and memorable events throughout our calendar year.

Each and every day we seek to live up to our name. All of this and more has culminated into Regents School of Austin – a place for joy, character, challenge, commitment, and community. It is our privilege to host you here online, and we look forward to an opportunity to host you on our amazing campus. Please do plan to visit. I look forward to meeting you.

For His Glory,
Dan Peterson, Ph.D.
Head of School

    Dear Seniors,
    Pause. Think. Reflect. Remember.
  • A Word from...Emma Gaertner and Will Thomas, 6th Grade Students

    It is through our community that we can celebrate a working Rube Goldberg project, or persevere through the sting of your fifth grade rocket not flying. It is through our community we pray for each other in homeroom and memorize life-changing verses (Ephesians 6:5-6). It is through this community we learn to live by the R.E.A.D. rule, and spelling rules, and just the rules of life -- like how to say you are sorry when it is hard. A big part of our community is the incredible teachers who teach us how to live the Christian life, to test our strengths, and to work together so our community will stay strong forever.
