Regents has exceeded our expectations across the board. The focus on Classical Christian education helps our boys thrive. Both children started the year a little behind even though they had straight A's in Virginia Public Schools. The individual focus and attention they have received at Regents, along with the great learning environment have helped them excel. Regents is safe and inclusive for our sons to attend and learn. COVID has been difficult on everyone, but Regents has found a way to be in person and provide the environment our kids deserve. Thank you REGENTS!

Regents has surpassed our expectations of learning this past year. Their focus on classical education and fundamentals is evident in the progress of our children. My son started the year behind in his reading ability and now has surpassed our goals for him for this year. This is due to the individualized time and attention that he has received at Regents, plus the rigorous, yet encouraging learning environment. Regents provides a safe, caring and loving environment for our sons to learn in. During this time of COVID, Regents has been able to safely and fully operate their school with in person classes and ensure that all students and teachers have a safe learning environment.

I have multiple graduate degrees and Regents has higher standards for my kids than I do — and can certainly draw out more from him than I can! We were impressed in Kindergarten that he was learning First Grade math at Regents because he was ready. My child transformed from a tentative reader to one who is curious and reads in his free time at home. At Regents, with the love and care for the teachers and staff there, I am watching my child turn into a sturdy individual, prepared for college and more importantly, life.

Regents is such a wonderful place! Our kindergarten daughter is thriving there and we couldn't be happier. We switched her over from public school halfway through the year and the academic strides she has made just in her short time at Regents has been amazing!! She is so happy to go to school every morning. She has made great friends. The teachers and administrators are so wonderful! The parents are so welcoming as well. We absolutely love it!

Regents is hard core about academics, hard core about faith, and hard core about loving kids. When my son first switched here from public school he said "Mom, Regents is so much harder but I like it so much better. I only wish I could've gone here last year too!"
