Regis Jesuit High School is a Catholic, college preparatory high school located in Aurora, Colorado, and administered by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). Founded in 1877, the high school shares much of its history with its counterpart Regis University in neighboring Denver, Colorado.

Regis is the Jesuits' only co-institutional high school in the U.S.A. (as opposed to co-educational), meaning that the school is split into two single-gender divisions.[3] The school is a member of the Jesuit Secondary Education Association[4] and is operated by the Central and Southern Province of the Society of Jesus, independent of and with the blessing of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Denver.


The school was founded by Italian Jesuits in 1877 in Las Vegas, New Mexico. Another school was opened in Morrison, Colorado, seven years later.[5] In 1888, the two schools were merged and renamed for St. John Francis Regis to become Regis College, located on 52nd and Lowell Streets in Denver, Colorado. In 1921, the school was formally split into Regis High School and Regis College (now Regis University). The high school and University co-existed on the campus in Denver and shared facilities until a separate building was built on campus for the high school in 1984. In 1989, a parcel of land near Parker and Arapahoe Roads in Aurora was donated to the school. That area is now called the Campbell Campus, and it houses both the Girls and Boys Divisions. In 2016 Regis appointed David Card as president, the first layperson to hold that position.[6][7]

Introduction of the Girls Division

Originally a school for boys, in August 2003 the first class of girls was enrolled in what became known as the Girls Division, with the original boys school theretofore referred to as the Boys Division. In August 2004 the Boys Division moved into its new building on the Campbell Campus and the Girls Division moved into the refurbished boys building. Recently a Performing Arts Center was added in-between the two schools, creating a closer bridge between the divisions.[8]


It is possible for Regis Jesuit students to take college credit courses at the high school and earn up to 36 semester hours of college credit from Regis University or through the Advanced Placement Program. There are more than 15 AP classes offered each year.

Both divisions participate in the Jesuit Alum Service Corps program, hosting graduates of Jesuit schools who volunteer to teach for a year after graduation from college.[9]


The requirements for the boys and girls divisions are quite similar.[10] The details below are a description of the boys' program.

Freshmen must complete 10 hours of documented service to parish, school, or other community on their own initiative. Sophomores complete 20 hours of service to the school and to non-profit organizations that serve the poor and marginalized. In both junior and senior years students spend 2 weeks (60 hours) in direct service with a single agency, and contribute an additional 25 hours of service to the poor and marginalized by October of their senior year.

The Capstone Seminar and Project finds seniors meeting in small groups throughout the year to reflect on their growth in accord with the Jesuit "Grad at Grad" criteria: open to growth, intellectually competent, religious, loving, and committed to doing justice.[11] Also: "Each student will create a project to present in front of a panel of three faculty/staff. ... (to explain) how am I different because of my experiences at Regis Jesuit?"

In addition, the Service Department offers immersion experiences for the boys division to Belize and Guatemala and other trips where they advocate for social justice.[12] The girls division is offered immersion experiences to Belize, Nicaragua, and to the Gulf Coast.[10]


As of 2016, Regis Jesuit had won 60 State Championships, with 48 for boys since 1988. The girls by their 13th year of existence had won 12 championships (including Spirit in 2010). This places Regis 6th in the state in number of State Championships.[13] In 2013 Sports Illustrated selected Regis as having the best high school athletics program in Colorado.[14]
