Letter from the Headmaster

At the time of writing this introduction, Pete Hegseth and David Goodwin’s A Battle for the American Mind: Uprooting a Century of Miseducation is the #1 non-fiction bestseller at Barnes & Noble and #2 on Amazon Charts. During a season when most Americans take a hiatus from education, it appears that many are reading about education. Despite how one feels toward the particular approach, views, or tone in Hegseth and Goodwin’s book (or their docuseries titled “The MisEducation of America”), the authors have captured the attention of our nation. They have identified and analyzed several deep-seated problems with education in America (e.g., its origins, curriculum, underlying educational philosophies, and culture) that resonate with many God-fearing parents who want what is best for their children, especially during such polarizing, confusing, and rapidly-changing times.

While Regents is neither a perfect school nor the best educational solution for every family in the area, it exists to help parents fulfill their responsibility to raise their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord (cf. Deut 6; Eph 6). We do so by offering families a distinctly classical and decidedly Christian education that equips students to lead lives of virtue, display mature character, love learning, and serve the Triune God. To ensure our curriculum meets standards of excellence, we sought re-accreditation through the Association of Classical Christian Schools (ACCS) this spring and received several commendations, including the extension of our full accreditation status. To enhance and expand our facilities in hopes of improving student learning and culture, we launched the Eagle Campaign this spring, with plans to begin construction of the gym this summer. And to equip our parents with parenting resources, we hosted two parent academies, helping parents grow in their understanding of classical Christian education and offering practical tools and counsel to aid in raising children in today’s world.

Regents’ administration is continually at work to improve the school’s culture and programming. Next year, we are excited to offer our first international senior trip! We are also adding more dual credit options in the rhetoric school, moving to a block schedule in the whole upper school, enhancing the upper school onboarding process, adding more electives during the school day, and more. We are also restructuring the administration of the school to allow for better management over specific operations. As of academic year 2022-2023, Regents will effectively have five directors (for business administration, admissions and communications, athletics, student support services, and curriculum and instruction) in addition to the heads of grammar school (Mr. Lance Vermillion) and logic/rhetoric school (Dr. John Quant). It is our prayer that all these initiatives will work toward enhancing our students’ love for learning and cultivating in them a deeper appreciation for all that’s true, good, and beautiful. 

We are thankful to God for how He provided for the school this past year. May the following articles and pictures serve as a testimony of His faithfulness and remind you to keep the school in your prayers and encourage you to grow in your own knowledge of education and God’s purpose for it.
 

In Christ,

Dr. Atwood

Class Activities
Our students enjoyed multiple activities throughout the third trimester! One major highlight is 6th grade’s inaugural capstone trip to Washington, DC! Over four days, the 6th graders were able to view monuments on the National Mall via bike, tour several Smithsonian museums and the zoo, and visit the Museum of the Bible. This trip provided our 6th graders with the opportunity to experience many of the places they read about during the school year. They had an amazing time and are thankful for a successful trip. To view all the pictures from this trimester’s class activities, click the link at the bottom of the newsletter!
