Regis Jesuit High School is a Catholic, college preparatory high school located in Aurora, Colorado, and administered by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). Founded in 1877, the high school shares much of its history with its counterpart Regis University in neighboring Denver, Colorado. The school is a member of the Jesuit Secondary Education Associationand is operated by the Central and Southern Province of the Society of Jesus, in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Denver.
The school was founded by Italian Jesuits in 1877 in Las Vegas, New Mexico. Another school was opened in Morrison, Colorado, seven years later.In 1888, the two schools were merged and renamed for St. John Francis Regis to become Regis College, located on 52nd and Lowell Streets in Denver, Colorado. In 1921, the school was formally split into Regis High School and Regis College (now Regis University). The high school and University co-existed on the campus in Denver and shared facilities until a separate building was built on campus for the high school in 1984. In 1989, a parcel of land near Parker and Arapahoe Roads in Aurora was donated to the school. That area is now called the Campbell Campus, and it houses both the Girls and Boys Divisions. In 2016 Regis appointed David Card as president, the first layperson to hold that position.
The demographic breakdown of the 1,654 students enrolled in 2015-2016 was:
As of 2018, Regis Jesuit had won 67 State Championships, with 54 for boys since 1988. The girls by their 13th year of existence had won 12 championships (including Spirit in 2010). This places Regis 6th in the state in number of State Championships.In 2013 Sports Illustrated selected Regis as having the best high school athletics program in Colorado.
