Each day at Regents begins with a brief worship gathering called Cantabile (a Latin word meaning “something worthy of being sung”). Cantabile includes scriptural recitation, singing, prayer, and a devotion (from staff, local ministers, parents, and house stewards). Throughout the day, teachers come alongside students, directing students toward a life that glorifies God. Through encouragement, instruction, and correction, teachers minister not just to the minds of students but also to their hearts. Each day Regents Academy seeks to cultivate the souls of its students to love learning, honor authority, and worship God.
G.K. Chesterton wrote, “Of course, the main fact about education is that there is no such thing. It does not exist, as theology or soldiering exist … education is a word like ‘transmission’ or ‘inheritance’; it is not an object, but a method. It must mean the conveying of certain facts, views, or qualities to the last baby born. They might be the most trivial facts, or the most preposterous views, or the most offensive qualities; but if they are handed on from one generation to another they are education.” God has called Christians to pass on the knowledge of Him to the next generation, shaping their souls and minds in faithfulness to Jesus Christ. We understand this to be the heart of our task.
