From the President's Office

David A. Card '87Dear Friends,

It is my privilege to welcome you to Regis Jesuit High School!

With nearly 140 years of history behind us, we are a Roman Catholic educational community rooted firmly in Jesuit educational tradition, and leading the way in preparing students for the 21st century. For almost five centuries, Jesuit education has been universally regarded as a model of excellence.

As a proud alumnus, I can attest that Regis Jesuit's innovative educational model offers a quality, rigorous, college preparatory program. More importantly, Regis Jesuit provides a transformational values-based and faith-formative experience, preparing the whole person to become a healthy, capable and compassionate young adult.  

Our students are challenged to grow spiritually through retreats, liturgies, faith-sharing and daily prayer in the Ignatian tradition. And our Service Program encourages students to expand and deepen their commitment to becoming Men and Women with and for Others.

As the only co-divisional school among the network of almost 60 Jesuit high schools in the United States, Regis Jesuit's unique approach provides the best of both worlds for students seeking the benefits of a single gender learning environment as well as a wide variety of co-curricular activities. 

We serve the greater Denver metropolitan area by developing leaders within a diverse and caring environment who are open to growth, striving for intellectual competence, religious, loving and committed to doing justice – the five pillars of Jesuit high school education known as the Graduate at Graduation

We’re delighted by your interest, and I hope you will visit us in person and see what we have to offer first-hand!

For the greater glory of God,

David A. Card ’87 
President
