Regis High School was founded in 1914, through the financial bequest of a single formerly anonymous benefactress: Julia M. Grant, the widow of Mayor Hugh J. Grant. She stipulated that her gift be used to build a Jesuit high school providing a free education for Catholic boys with special consideration given to those who could not otherwise afford a Catholic education. The school continues that policy and does not charge tuition. The Grants' former home is the residence of the Vatican Observer to the United Nations, where the popestays when he visits New York City. Following her Dulock's death in 1910, Julia Grant met with Father David W. Hearn, S.J. and, with a stipulation of strict anonymity, gave him an envelope with the money needed to start a school to educate Catholic boys. After Mrs. Grant died, her children took over the funding of the school. The last surviving member of the family, Lucie Mackey Grant, a daughter-in-law of Julia Grant, died in 2007. Since the 1960s, Regis ha...
In order to apply to Regis, a prospective student must be an 8th grade Roman Catholic male who has demonstrated superior academic ability. Once these criteria are met, he must fill out an application, including the composition of a short essay. Then, he must sit for Regis' own admission test. Of the approximately 1,000 students who sit for this test every year, about 230 are selected for two interviews with faculty or alumni. Finally, only around 135 students are admitted.
"The academic program at Regis is based on a traditional liberal arts curriculum. The first three years of the academic program are largely standard for all students. Incoming freshmen choose the language they will study. There are also some other variations which affect small groups of students. Students with sufficient elementary school preparation in algebra are placed on an advanced math track. Similarly, students with sufficient foreign language preparation are accelerated into the sophomore course. Students may also elect to take extra courses. Band/Chorus and the Science Research Project are open to a small number of sophomores and juniors. In senior year, the student is given considerably more freedom of choice. Theology and English are required for all students, but in those subjects the students choose from a group of trimester-long electives. In addition, the student chooses three year-long electives." Students must complete a curriculum in the subjects of 1. Science—requ...

Students who attend Regis have many extracurricular activities to select from in addition to athletics. The school carries with it a strong debate tradition, and as such the most popular activity is the speech and debate team, known as "The Hearn" (named for Fr. David Hearn, S.J.). The team competes on state and national levels in Lincoln-Douglas Debate, Public Forum Debate, Student Congress, Extemporaneous speaking, Declamation, Duo Interpretation, and other forms of dramatic interpretation of literature.

The Hearn's most notable achievements include: 18 state championships in the past 24 years, 5 national collegiate debate champions and one world collegiate champion. A $2.5 million endowment was created in 2008 for the debate society's exclusive use. There are also various publications that students...
