Founded in 1914 by an anonymous benefactor and supported by the generosity of her family, its alumni and friends, Regis High School offers a tuition free Jesuit college preparatory education to Roman Catholic young men from the New York metropolitan area who demonstrate superior intellectual and leadership potential. In the admissions process, special consideration is given to those who cannot otherwise afford a Catholic education.
The Mass of the Holy Spirit is a tradition among Jesuit academic institutions in which the school community gathers to thank God for the gifts He has given and to seek the wisdom of the Holy Spirit in the coming year. This year's Mass, which marked the 103rd for the Regis High School community, included a special Missioning ceremony for Rev. Daniel K. Lahart, SJ as he was installed as the school's 23rd president.
