Parents and Family

IN LOCO PARENTIS


Regents School believes in the priority of the family as instituted by God.  No other institution is given the high calling of raising and nurturing children.  Our school serves in loco parentis, that is, teachers stand in the parents' place, training students here as we anticipate Christian parents are also doing at home.

Parent Involvement

Regents thrives on parent participation.  Whether you are a dad coaching a basketball team or helping a team of dads with morning drop-off, or a mom dressed for French Revolution Day - you are involved.  Our field trips and events are spilling over with active, impassioned parents.  Many parents will say, "Wow! I wish that I had this kind of education!  Do you take late-comers?!"

Beyond support for the larger events, teachers and coaches seek to partner with parents as we collectively educate and train each student.  The ongoing dialogue between parents and teachers allows both groups to understand the student more thoroughly. 

Beyond the events and the classroom, parents occupy a significant and somewhat less noticeable role.  Their relationships with each other turn our campus into a formidable presence of community.  As a parent goes through their own learning process of parenting - they are surrounded by hundreds of people going through the same thing.  So, if you really want to be involved in the culture of Regents, look for ways to connect with other parents.  They are also looking for fellow travelers.

Ways to Serve

List of 2 items.

  • Prayers

    From the beginning this has been a school founded on prayer.  We are deeply grateful to our founding families for their prayerful leadership. 

    And today, as you walk through the halls, offices and listen in while classrooms are in session, it is evident that prayer is a critical ingredient to the building of His school.  Each day teacher and students begin their day praying for one another.

    Regents parents get in on the action too!  Mom's prayer and Dad's prayer groups meet once a week and pray for our students, staff, faculty and community.
  • Volunteer

    A core component of the Regents experience is the relationship of parents and gradparents to every aspect of the child's education from volunteering in the classroom, the Science and Nature Center, the lunchroom, or even the reception desk.  The vast amount of skills and experience, in combination with tremendous in-kind gifts, significantly reduce our operating costs.  In fact, we average more than 44,000 volunteer hours per year.
     
    If you would like to learn more about prayer groups or how you can volunteer, contact our RPC Chair.
