Join us for our Information Session!
Join us for an exclusive Information Session November 30th at 6:00pm at St. James the Sag Bridge Catholic Church in Lemont, IL, and discover the power of faithfully Catholic Classical education. Please note this is not the finalized location of the potential RCA site, and the RCA center is yet to be determined. Chicagoland/Northwest Indiana is one of our potential expansion locations. Your interest supports the potential placement of RCA in your city. At Regina Caeli Academy, we offer a unique hybrid model that combines the best of homeschooling with the benefits of classroom instruction. Learn about our accredited curriculum, classical teaching methods, and the seamless integration of faith and academics.
Regina Caeli Chicagoland
At Regina Caeli Academy, we take pride in being the premier accredited PreK-12 homeschool hybrid academy, tailor-made for Catholic homeschooling families across 20 cities in the United States. Our mission is to offer a five-day-a-week program that combines in-classroom lessons twice a week with at-home lesson plans and support for parents on the other three days, creating the perfect blend of education and family involvement.
Whether you have always home schooled and seek extra support, or your children have attended a traditional school, we are here to help you give your children the best classical education available today.
Regina Caeli Academy's unique method offers both a strong family life enjoyed by homeschoolers and a formative, Socratic classroom experience for all students. As you browse our website, please notice the many extra-curricular activities, our commitment to the evangelical Catholic life, as well as the college preparatory high school offerings.
Regina Caeli Academy encourages our students to strive for excellence in academics as well as in virtuous living, self-discipline, and accountability through a classical education taught in light of the Catholic tradition.
We are open to all students regardless of race, color, sex, national origin, and ethnic origin.
Our Catholic faith is embedded in the culture and curriculum of RCA. We ensure our teachers and staff are committed to faithful adherence to the Holy Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church through an oath of fidelity. Students have frequent access to the sacraments of the Eucharist and Reconciliation, regular religion classes following the Baltimore Catechism, and regular interactions with religious clergy.
"What I love most of all about the academy is that the staff are unapologetically Catholic and hold the students to high standards."
Lauren Coughlin, Tampa Parent
Benefits of a Classical Curriculum
Following the great intellectual tradition of the classical liberal arts, Regina Caeli™ curriculum utilizes a classical methodology that rests on the concept of the Trivium, Latin for “the three ways” of learning: grammar, logic and rhetoric – which correspond to a student’s naturally maturing mind. Classroom work such as narration, picture study, presentation, and oral and written persuasion show the interconnectedness of all knowledge through the contemplation of the True, the Good, and the Beautiful. Classical education based on the trivium, integrated classical books, art and music, and idea-focused instruction provides students with the foundation to live a principled life and is proven to cultivate wisdom and virtue so that the love of God may abound more and more.
Preparation for the Future
In addition to providing an opportunity for students to grow in their Catholic faith and be formed in virtue, our full college preparatory curriculum provides a high quality educational experience. We uphold and maintain our academic excellence as outlined by our NAPCIS (National Association of Private Catholic and Independent Schools), GAC (Georgia Accrediting Commission), and NISAC (National Independent Study Accreditation Council) accreditation standards. Whether our students plan to pursue a college degree, vocational school, or perhaps even a religious vocation, they will be well prepared to flourish in their future endeavors.
