Soli Deo Gloria

Regents School of Charlottesville was established in August of 2010 in Charlottesville, Virginia with the hope and expectation that all we do as a school would be Soli Deo Gloria (to God alone be the glory.)

Our story began as a tiny school of seven students, four dedicated families, and one full-time teacher in the basement of Jefferson Park Baptist Church. We knew that classical Christian education in Charlottesville would have to be demonstrated, not just described, to ignite a passion for this model of education in the heart of Thomas Jefferson’s birthplace, a place where many residents have an appreciation for a life long pursuit of excellent academics. In this pursuit of excellent academics, the heart of learning was forgotten: that one must acquire the tools of learning and must view them through the lens of biblical truth.

Classical Christian education is the pedagogical model which shaped many of our founding fathers, including Jefferson. The founders of Regents School had seen the results of the revival of classical Christian education in schools across this great nation and were compelled to bring it to Charlottesville.

We hope to give students at Regents School the tools to think so that they can learn anything.  Many of our parents go back to their educational roots and read the classics alongside their children eager for understanding and clarity that they did not receive in their own schooling.  We are grateful for this type of parent partnership at Regents School and recognize that God gave parents the responsibility of training up children including his or her education (Deuteronomy 6:7, Psalm 78:5-7).  The concept of In Loco Parentis describes much of how we operate here at Regents School.

Our Mission

Truth, Beauty and Wisdom

Our mission is to provide a classical and Christian education, founded upon and informed by a biblical worldview, that equips our students to know, love, and practice that which is true, good, and the beautiful and challenges them to live purposefully and intelligently as servants of the Lord Jesus Christ for the benefit of man and the glory of God.

We accomplish this mission by employing the time-tested methods of the Trivium as described in Dorothy Sayers' 1947 essay "The Lost Tools of Learning." Sayers describes three developmental stages of learning as being best served by Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric stages of education. These stages of education are structured to capture a student's natural propensity for acquiring knowledge with tools of learning appropriate to their age.

The most important distinction of a Regents education, however, is testing all of our curriculum, methodology, and arguments against biblical truth. We train up young hearts and minds alongside their parents to know, love, and practice God’s Word. There is great purpose to all that we teach at Regents in equipping our students to go out and serve God and man in a world that is in decline.

It is imperative that we raise up Christian men and women to be substantive leaders for the next generation, who know truth, can think logically, and can articulate their arguments winsomely to others. Through years of study and logical thinking, we want our graduates to know truth, appreciate beauty, and demonstrate a God-given wisdom.
