we have had a positive experience at Regents...as with any experience in life, you get out of it what you put into it. I embraced the value of community and jumped right in, which made for a positive experience finding groups of parents and students that were more alike to our family. I remember in the interview process in 2007, we stressed the need of being in a private school where we could be part of a community, and received one. The interview and testing process was impressive, with the faculty saying "please don't look to us as the perfect school because we are all imperfect people". It has been as perfect of an experience as we could expect. I believe the education my children receive is of high quality and the opportunities for music and athletics are wonderful. Our eldest has been successful in college and credits his education at Regents. I read the comments about drug use and bullying, recalling the fact that we are all human and fall short, those social ills will exist in any school environment.

They don't live up to their stated values and mission. Lots of bullying and drug use in the school and a complete failure by the administration to address the issues. They seem to have lost their way because of their focus on growth.

i simply love Regents, before they decided to make some changes... they simply chose to forget the old things that made this school so special and heart-warming! for example, teachers used to be allowed to have a sleepover with their female students. as a student, that was one of my favorite memories; but i was very dissapointed to hear that the changes that were being made were taking away the heart of Regents. in SOL and SOR (middle school and high school), it is amazing! i love it! the only drawback is freedom, but they give the appropriate amount sometimes, and strangle you with constriction other times. all in all, i love Regents! few things need change, but it still is a great school with a great education. --a student

We absolute love Regents! We lived on the east coast for 10 years. Having some of the best schools available to us we were hesitant to leave and agreed that if we could find a school as academically challenging as what we had available to us we would move. Regents rose to the top of the list. We interviewed everyone who would talk to us. Every single person, including teachers and a coach from a nearby private school raved about Regents. One teacher quoted, "every family I know from Regents have one thing in common, they have the absolute best family bond and fun together, if I only knew what they did over there to make such great families." That interview stuck with us. We made the move and prayed for our application to be accepted. 1 1/2 years later we could not be happier. It is an amazing community. From the board to the teachers and staff, everyone genuinely loves what they do and excel in their field of expertise. Regents comes alongside the parents to help us to raise intellectual, articulate God-loving children into young adults. Our children are taught to think for yourself, articulate your beliefs with respect and honor and stand for what you believe in.

In the fall of 2009, we had been overseas for 6 years and decided it was time to return to the U.S. to make sure our three children (aged 6, 8 and 11) got the best education possible. We are fortunate enough to be able to live wherever we choose, so we researched Classical Christian schools all around the country. We chose Regents. Having just completed our first year, we could not be more pleased. They have exceeded our expectations on every front. Leadership, all the way from the Board to the teachers to the coaches to the facilities staff, is superb. The premise is that they are there to come along side the parents in raising bright, articulate, Godly children. If you are seeking an academically rigorous, Christ-centered education for your child, I would strongly recommend Regents School of Austin.

We searched the entire Austin area for the best fit for our family. We were impressed from the beginning. The application process is detailed and involved, requiring that parents read a book about Christian Classical education, giving you the sense that the school cares whether or not your child/ren succeed. Other schools that we looked at left us with the impression (right or wrong) that their only concern was the tuition. As soon as we toured Regents and grasped the concept, we felt very much at home. It is every parent's dream that their values and standards will be upheld and developed upon through their child/ren's school. At Regents, we have not only recognized that dream, but so much more. It takes a village and you can t find a better one. The average 2009 SAT score was 1988, as if we needed more proof that we were in a great school!

We are very happy with the entire Regents experience. We moved from other private (and 1 public) schools to experience the classical education and have been pleased with the entire experience. We were looking for more rigorous academics. Now, my youngest child is 'finally being challenged to think' and my oldest child says 'this is the only school for me' and wants to graduate from Regents. As a parent, I see lots of family involvement, family oriented activities and a dedicated, loving staff.

Children are not taught to inquire, to write, to behave, to talk to adults in a respectful manner, to think for themselves, to defend their faith, or even to function in an adult world. They are spoonfed information and asked to repeat it. Please, send your kids anywhere but here, if you love them at all. Veritas, St. Andrews, St. Michaels, St. Steven's, even public school are much better options for your child, regardless of their faith. It's not a good education. It's just a miserable experience.

We moved our high school aged sons from an area high school by the lake due to concerns over environment, drugs and alcohol. Both were ranked in the top 20 students in their class at the time. We are so happy we made the move. The older son summed it up best; he feels for the first time he is actually coming away with a working understanding of the class materials instead of simple memorization that is so prevalent in public schools today. In addition to the coursework, there is a strong emphasis on writing and speaking which was non-existent at the public school. We are very, very thankful that we made a tough decision to move to Regents during their 4 years of public HS. Parents and students are amazing. Caliber of the teaching staff is very impressive!

I now have three children attending Regents (K, 4th & 6th). The teachers, acedemics, library, facilities, nature center and parent community are all outstanding. Regents is a resource school for others starting a school based upon the classical Christian education model. We love it and are very thankful that our children have the opportunity to attend.
