At Regents Academy, even our youngest students receive formal instruction in music. In our KPrep class, the goal is to build a sturdy foundation for the students to continue to build upon in the years to come. In the video below, the students are learning a rhythm activity called “Blue Jello.” This exercise requires the recitation of words that correspond with specific rhythms. While our students usually clap the rhythms, here they decided to slow it down and jump to the beats.
Morning Cantabile is how we start every day at Regents Academy. The whole school gathers to sing hymns, recite Scripture, and hear the word of God. Parents are always encouraged to join us during this time. Enjoy the video of our first Cantabile of the year!

Last week, the 22/23 house stewards (Katelyn Anderson, Susannah Vermilion, Bryce Terrell, and Emma Crescenzo), along with the house masters (Lauren Lawrence, Rick Hurst, Lina Burklin, and Jason Modar), took their annual steward training trip. This year they traveled to Rockport, Texas. The group planned for the upcoming year’s events, schedules, buddies, and service projects, and redefined various aspects such as house worship and the points system. As the school has grown, the house system has matured and expanded, including more grade levels, ways for all students to be involved and take ownership, and opportunities for parents at school-wide events. We’re really excited about our new house coordinator, Mrs. Mary Austin, and all her wonderful ideas for house moving forward! We are also looking forward to this year’s group of leaders and vision, feeling blessed to be working as a unified team to reshape our school’s culture to be rooted in truth, beauty, and goodness.
