ACCS Accredited!

On June 15, 2019, in Atlanta, Georgia, Mr. David Goodwin, president of the Association of Classical and Christian Schools (ACCS) presented a plaque to Headmaster David Bryant, along with the faculty and board members present, recognizing Regents Academy as an ACCS-accredited school.

Regents has long been a member of the ACCS, and we have aspired to accreditation as an institutional goal. To be accredited by the ACCS means that (according to the ACCS website) Regents Academy meets “foundational standards for a classical Christian school. ACCS staff validate and oversee the process to ensure compliance. In addition, ACCS sends periodic evaluators (typically the heads of other, larger ACCS schools) to verify the school’s compliance. Unlike other accrediting agencies, ACCS verifies the classical nature of the school’s teaching so that it reaches a foundational set of requirements.”

We praise the Lord for this moment of recognition and thank Him for blessing our school!

Welcome, Mrs. Jana Alexander

Regents Academy is very glad to welcome Mrs. Jana Alexander as its new Grammar School music teacher for the 2019-20 school year.

Mrs. Alexander has several years’ experience in classical Christian education as a kindergarten teacher in California and also as a homeschooling parent. She is a talented musician who employs her skill as a pianist in a number of settings, including her church, and in her private piano studio.

Mrs. Alexander, the wife of Regents teacher Ben Alexander and mother of five, takes up the position of outgoing long-time music teacher Emily Farrell, who became a mom herself last school year. Mrs. Alexander brings a continued presence of creativity and skill to the school’s music program, and we are excited for her to come on board.

Introducing … the Regents Latin Teacher for 2019-20

Regents Academy is very happy to welcome Mrs. Lara Sowell as Latin teacher for 2019-20. As many in our school family know, Mrs. Sowell has struggled with health problems that she believed would keep her from returning next school year. However, she is glad to report that she will be able to return to what she loves — the Latin classroom at Regents Academy.

Mrs. Sowell is certainly no stranger to our school, having taught Latin at Regents since the school’s inception. We are beyond ecstatic that she is able to continue teaching our 6th-9th grade students.

Te amamus, magistra!
