Our History


The Regina Academies







Regina Coeli Academy, the first Regina Academy was founded in 2003 by a group of concerned Catholics who recognized the great need for a return to the ancient classical liberal arts education, which had produced, through the centuries, some of the greatest minds in Western Civilization. The model was founded on a pursuit of God (beauty, truth and goodness), providing a thorough grounding in the teachings of the Catholic Church and reflecting the practice of Christian values. The courses offered provide the students with the tools for learning to enable them as they go through the Trivium (grammar, logic, and rhetoric), to acquire knowledge and critical thinking skills, developing them into life long learners and impacting them as future leaders.

The success of Regina Coeli Academy brought forth three sister academies, Regina Angelorum Academy,  Regina Luminis Academy and The Regina Academy at St. John the Baptist in Ottsville, geographically located in the  Greater Philadelphia region.

Today, all three schools are thriving and  in 2016 the Regina Chesterton Academy tract opened at Cardinal O’Hara High School.  For more information about any of the Regina Academies or  Regina Chesterton Academy at Cardinal O’Hara  you may visit their web sites listed below:
