Back to School on Friday!

Gratefully, we will be returning to school tomorrow. Please pray for the thousands on the coast who lost their homes last night and for those who are still displaced.

School Closed on Thursday, August 27

Dear Regents Community,

With adverse hurricane conditions not due to arrive until this evening, classes today will continue like normal. However, since the storm is unpredictable and could produce life-threatening winds and heavy rains, we are cancelling school tomorrow (Thursday, August 27). The outcome on Thursday will determine whether we will have school on Friday. 

Of course, families who feel the need to evacuate the area are free to pick up their child early from school (or not bring him/her at all). Simply notify the school’s office if you plan for an early pick-up so that we know to expect you and can bring your child out to you.

Please keep the whole Regents family and East Texas community in your prayers!

Class of 2020 Graduation Honors

Regents Academy is very glad to announce the academic honors for the Class of 2020. Of course, for most years these honors are announced at the graduation ceremony — which is still to come in this year of pandemic. We are so proud of the excellent character and outstanding accomplishments of the nine students in the Class of ’20. It has been such an honor to walk with them and their families through their journey toward graduation and beyond.

The Valedictorian of the Class of 2020 is Conner Young, who graduates with Summa Cum Laude honors. Conner is the son of Dr. and Mrs. Tim and Kelly Young. Along with his brothers Will and Wesley, Conner is the third child in the Young family to graduate from Regents Academy.

The Salutatorian of the Class of 2020 is Ethan Fairley, who graduates with Summa Cum Laude honors. Ethan is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Kerr and Ellen Fairley. Along with his brother Knox, Ethan is the first in his family to graduate from Regents Academy.

Other students who achieved graduation honors include the following:

Abigail Powers, Magna Cum Laude

James Vermillion, Magna Cum Laude

Sydney Bryant, Cum Laude

Knox Fairley, Cum Laude

Congratulations, students! Only the Lord knows the commitment and diligence that has brought you these honors. May the Lord God bless you and keep you and make His face to shine upon you.

End of Year Materials Drop Off and Pick Up

Students and parents are allowed to come on campus to bring in school books/materials and pick up student supplies on May 19-20. Teachers will be at the school to help organize classrooms. However, the governor’s guidelines allow no more than 5 persons at a time within a confined interior space. We must maintain social distancing on campus. Therefore, we are staggering the days and times for students to come on campus, and, once 5 people are in a room, you will need to wait until someone leaves before we let someone else in. Here are the specifics.

Tuesday, May 19 — Grammar School Drop Off/Pick Up — KPrep-6th

9:00 a.m. – noon: Families whose last name begins with A-H

1:00 – 4:00 p.m.: Families whose last name begins with I-Z

Wednesday, May 20 — Logic/Rhetoric School Drop Off/Pick Up — 7th-12th

9:00 a.m. – noon: Families whose last name begins with A-H

1:00 – 4:00 p.m.: Families whose last name begins with I-Z

Please enter through the front doors and exit through the rear doors. This flow will minimize traffic through the school office/foyer and help maintain social distancing.

Parents may visit the office if needed, but the school office/foyer will be considered an enclosed space, and the 5-person maximum will apply.

If you have a child in both Grammar School and L/R School, please plan to come on campus both days.

A few more details:

  • Social distancing guidelines apply at all times: at least 6 feet separation among individual visitors not within the same household, including when entering and leaving a school facility.
  • Students need to return all books and materials that belong to the school, including Chromebooks and power cords. You are strongly encouraged to organize these supplies at home so that you can deliver them all in one trip. Your family will be billed for any books or materials not turned in.
  • Teachers will help organize students’ supplies so that they are ready to be picked up.
  • Logic/Rhetoric students need to completely clean out their lockers.
  • Students should bring a large bag or box to transport their supplies.
  • We encourage students to come to the classroom alone or with a maximum of 1 parent in order to facilitate the 5-person per room maximum.
  • The school building will be sanitized before students arrive, and teachers will continue to sanitize surfaces throughout the day.
  • Face masks are strongly encouraged. Washing hands and using hand sanitizer is required.
  • Students or parents displaying any of the following new or worsening signs or symptoms of possible COVID-19 should not come on campus: cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain or headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, diarrhea, feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0, or known close contact with a person who is lab confirmed to have COVID-19.

Thank you for working with us on this staggered schedule and with these guidelines. Even though we won’t be able to be together as a whole school, it will still be good to see one another in this limited way. If you have questions, please email the school office at

Welcome, Mrs. Rebecca Beauregard

Regents Academy has been blessed with excellent math instruction for many years now. Mrs. Melissa Rotramel has served Regents families for two years with excellence, teaching Algebra, Geometry, and Biology during her time on the faculty. We will miss her devotion to her students and her creativity in the classroom as she moves on to new ventures.

But, as always, God provides the right teachers at the right time.

Regents Academy is glad to welcome Mrs. Rebecca Beauregard to its faculty for the 2020-21 school year. Mrs. Beauregard will teach Prealgebra, Algebra 1, and Geometry to Logic and Rhetoric School students. While Mrs. Beauregard spent the last several years at home with her children, for a number of years she taught middle and high school math in Arizona. Now, working alongside her husband Matthew, who teaches Calculus at Regents, Mrs. Beauregard will bring her skill and talent to the Regents classroom. Matthew and Rebecca are the parents of four children, two of whom are students at Regents Academy.

Welcome, Mrs. Beauregard!

Senior Slideshows — Celebrating the Class of 2020

Near the end of the school year, our students, teachers, and many parents gather for Senior Day and celebrate our seniors. It’s too bad that the 2020 senior class won’t be able to enjoy this joyful milestone. However, we can still celebrate with our seniors and help make this a special time for them and their families. At Senior Day each year we get to celebrate each senior’s life through their Senior Slideshow.

I’m happy to report that this year’s Senior Slideshows are now available for us to enjoy on YouTube.

(Here is the link to the Senior Slideshows in case the YouTube player above doesn’t work.)

So let me urge you to join in on the senior celebration by doing these things:

  • Go to YouTube and watch the videos! You will not be disappointed. 
  • The comments are turned on in YouTube, so please leave encouraging and uplifting comments that will bless our seniors.
  • Share the slideshows on social media — let’s spread the celebration far and wide.

We want to give a huge shout-out to Pastor Randy Booth who created and uploaded the slideshows — thank you, Pastor Booth!

Once again, here is the link to the Senior Slideshows. Please enjoy them and give thanks to God for our awesome seniors of 2020.
