Regents School of Oxford
The purpose of Regents is to provide a distinctive classical and Christ-centered education. The goal of the Admissions process is to bring together a cohesive student body that can best grow spiritually, intellectually, and physically. Each applicant’s academic potential, scholastic motivation, wholesome character, and extracurricular interests will be considered. We will prayerfully seek to discern what is best for the child, the parents, and the school. The school reserves the right to deny or defer admission to a child if his or her ability, behavior, or emotional development suggests that he or she would not be best served by our school. Because of the magnitude and importance of its task, the independence and integrity of the Admissions will be guarded.
To maintain the Christ-centered community at Regents, each parent must have a clear understanding of the biblical philosophy and functioning of Regents, and at least one of the parents must profess Christ, but preferably both. The key elements of Christianity, as expressed in our statement of faith, will be unapologetically taught through all grade levels. Parents who choose Regents are expected to willingly cooperate with the philosophies and policies of the school.
Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible in its entirety is a divine revelation, and we submit to the authority of His Holy Scripture, acknowledging it to be inerrantly inspired by God and to carry the full weight of His authority.
We believe in one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all things, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right of the Father, in His personal return in power and glory.
The Father and the risen ascended Son have sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in the hearts of believers, effecting their regeneration and operating in their sanctification. This same Holy Spirit brings His people together to form a corporate community of believers. We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that the triune God has established a visible church which is called to live in the power of the Holy Spirit under the authoritative regulation of Holy Scripture, exercising discipline and administering the sacraments, and preaching the gospel of Christ.
We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone, on the merit of Christ alone. This faith without its accompanying works is dead.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved to the resurrection of eternal life; they that are lost to the resurrection of damnation.
Regents has been established on the foundation of beliefs expressed in these statements. The substance of these statements is considered primary doctrine of Regents. When other types of doctrine or issues arise, they will be referred to the family and local churches for final authority.
