A Word From...Dan Peterson, Head of School

"As a leader, it is my role to serve, protect, and advance the mission of Regents...It is my vision that The Regents Podcast will giving a microphone to our mission as a school, for our community and the classical Christian school movement as a whole." 
When I was in graduate school commuting back and forth to campus from my apartment, I listened to the radio and became influenced by Dave Ramsey and Albert Mohler who both had shows timed when I drove home in the afternoons. Since that time, and I know I am dating myself, technology has given way to many more mediums to allow freedom in selection by consumers. The emergence of podcasting changed the paradigm in both content, access, how, and when to listen. A podcast is a digital form of media that includes regular episodes in the form of audio or video. One can use a mobile device of their choice to download or stream a podcast. Part of my rhythm is to listen to a podcast from Albert Mohler called “The Briefing,” which is a daily worldview analysis about the leading news headlines and cultural conversations. I also enjoy listening to "Breakpoint" by The Colson Center, which covers a host of cultural issues. Essentially, podcasting is a space of influence affecting how and what we think about culture.

I am excited to announce the launch of "The Regents Podcast", a podcast for K-12 classical Christian educators and parents. This podcast is aimed to think and equip how we practice that which is true, good, and beautiful in a 21st century context. We will address a variety of topics from social media to what is a senior thesis to our purpose to redeem sports and fine arts for Christ. The format will be conversational, and I will be interviewing teachers, leaders, and parents to think deeply and biblically about the topic at hand. I believe we have incredible men and women in our community that have the ability to give voice and wisdom on a variety of topics related to K-12 classical Christian education, discipleship, and parenting.

As a leader, it is my role to serve, protect, and advance the mission of Regents. I believe using the educational medium of an episodic podcast focused on why we exist as a school will be a useful communication tool. It is my vision that "The Regents Podcast" will give a microphone to our mission as a school, for our community, and the classical Christian school movement as a whole.
