Campus Life

Clubs and Activities

On Campus

The campus community embraces many varying student talents and interests.  Since the founding of the school, parents and families have shared a sense of commitment to expose, teach, and grow from the arts, athletics and from nature.   It's not unusual to find a football player in the orchestra or jazz band or a 4H student in choir, art or journalism.

As a K-12 campus, we are enriched by the formal and informal activities and role modeling between younger and older students.   Parents of younger children also benefit from the support system of older parents who encourage and guide them through the education process.  Dads have a special role at Regents as they are greeting faces, opening car doors at the curb of the school each morning, pitching in at the science and nature center, on the athletic field, and sharing in a dads-only boot camp. Dads of seniors make breakfast and pray over our seniors at the annual senior breakfast.   Mothers are found in the classroom, in the library, in prayer, and in the background supporting every activity of the school.  Even grandparents volunteer their time reading to the children, helping in the garden or making special contributions in the classroom. Our seniors attend the kindergarten field trip to Crowe's Nest Farm, have kinder buddies, and are the "star attraction" at many a Grammar student's birthday party.
 
Our community of families extends beyond the classroom. We all have shared common values and traditions. When a new year of first graders have Pilgrim day every grade older than them remembers their very own Pilgrim Day.

This club will be extremely beneficial because we will begin to learn the careers we are interested in and how to be successful in them.
    • Math Club is a place where everyone can come and learn more about math and how it relates to the world around us. We explore the joys of math and see how it relates to things we love most, math club is a fun place for everyone!
    • Fishing Club: The Regents Fishing club is for everyone interested in fishing; from those who have never fished before, to the avid fisherman. The club has two main focuses, one is to teach people more about the world of fishing and help them become better anglers. The second aspect of the club is tournament bass fishing at the high school level. We fish in monthly tournaments hosted by the Faith Angler Network and the Student Angler Federation. We also fish tournaments as a club on Lady Bird Lake for fun. We have designed the club curriculum to fit people who know little about fishing as well as those who are passionate about the sport.
    • Music Club: A group of kids passionate about making music and promoting it at Regents and in the Austin area. There are several kids who are afraid or shy to perform/lead worship in front of others so Music Club is a perfect way to collaborate with like-minded individuals who share the same appreciation for music of all genres. God has blessed each one of us with immeasurable talent and if you have ANY musical talent, we encourage you to join us and let your beautiful being created in the image of God, shine through music! 
    • Teen Library Board supports and promotes our school library.  The members will help select books, create library displays, host library events, and serve our school library as well as other community libraries. 
    • Service Council: The purpose of the Regents Service Council is to expand the impact of our student body through participation in community service. We aim to use our gifts, talents, and time in a way that helps those in need and improves the Austin community.
      The SOR Service Council is continuing its newly established tradition of the Bounty Bowl this fall. The Bounty Bowl is a donation drive to collect coats for the Austin-local event Coats for Kids, run by the Junior League. The effort is school-wide, and boxes for collections are in Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric during October and November. Regents competes against Hyde Park in collecting the most coats (per capita) and the winner is announced at the Regents-Hyde Park football game in November!
    • Student Council: The object of the Student Council is to excel in student leadership by representing the best interests of the student body before the administration; by planning, organizing and implementing the Ministerium component of Regents School’s academic program; by fostering a healthy esprit de corps among the students; and by aiding the school in its chief goal as established by its founders: the pursuit of truth, goodness and beauty in the service of God and man.
    • Current Events Club:
      The purpose of studying current events is to ensure students are educated and understand the importance of people, events, and issues in the news; it stimulates students to explore and learn more about the news, and to pay attention to the news they see and hear outside of school.
  • SOR Computer Programming

    The Intro to Programming Course at Regents encapsulates many aspects of a Classical education. At its core, computer programming is simply applied math and logic.

    Regents Prefects are students selected by the administration and graduating Prefects to represent themselves, their school, and God in leadership, responsibility, and collaboration. The program includes training, mentoring and opportunities to contribute to the school in meaningful ways, from representing the school to parents, prospective families and the community, assisting with specific events or functions of the school, to working with faculty and administration on decisions and planning. Prefects provide important student perspectives on matters and have an important voice in matters affecting students in the School of Rhetoric.
  • Mock Trial

    Mock Trial is more like a sport than a club - the team competes against other schools, requires practice, commitment and discipline and has a few fans at our competition - parents. It is an academic sport ideally suited for students trained in logic and rhetoric. Students are given a mock civil or criminal case usually based on a real case and assume the roles of attorney or witness in order to enter a simulated court trial against other schools. Using actual Federal Rules of Evidence and learning courtroom protocol, students argue their case before real attorneys and judges.

  • PSIA

     
    Private Schools Interscholastic Association (PSIA)
    Statistical research has shown that students who participate in academic extracurricular activities score higher on achievement and assessment tests than those who do not participate in such academic programs.  We also have found that participants whose parents are actively involved in working with their children in extracurricular academic programs have the greatest success in competition, as well as in their future academic studies.
    PSIA programs are designed to support the basic academic curriculum and are easily implemented into daily studies to enrich academic skills.
     
    PSIA participation helps your child achieve these goals:
                • develop God-given talents
                • find new excitement in learning
                • develop teamwork and a sense of fair play

In addition to service projects, the Logic Leadership Council  specifically focuses attention on planning fun and entertaining events for all Logic students, strengthening homeroom with team building experiences, acknowledging teacher's hard work, and creatively discussing solutions about current concerns within Logic as a council and with administrators. The School of Logic student body elects three officers and a representative from each homeroom to lead the Council each year.
