Vision of Catholic Home Education and Formation
At Regina Caeli Academy we believe parents and those who hold their place are bound by the obligation and enjoy the God given right of educating their children.
Homeschool Hybrid Method
Our carefully designed homeschool hybrid model offers support to parents with an accredited classical curriculum for Pre-K through 12th grade. Students attend classes by grade level at their local campus centers on Mondays and Thursdays and follow the integrated curriculum at home during the remainder of the week. Campus classes are taught by teachers (we call them tutors) trained in the classical curriculum and the Socratic method to lead intentional discussion throughout the material as your child grows through stages of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. Our classical curriculum insists that the purpose of education is to cultivate a mind pursuant of truth and includes robust coursework in reading, writing, Latin, mathematics, music, debate, and the visual arts.
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.
Education for Catholics
"Parents and those who take their place are bound by the obligation and possess the right of educating their offspring. Catholic parents also have the duty and right of choosing those means and institutions through which they can provide more suitably for the Catholic education of their children, according to local circumstances" (Can. 793 §1)

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.
