Why choose a ReGeneration School?

Your child's education is the biggest gift you can give them. ReGeneration Schools are tuition-free, public schools that will prepare your child for success in college and beyond.

 Great Teachers

Great Instruction

At ReGeneration Schools, learning comes first. Our teachers present engaging lessons that will make your child work hard and think deeply. We expect each and every student to achieve high standards in reading, writing, math, history and science, so if your child struggles, we tutor students during school, after school, and on Saturdays.

It's not enough for students to excel academically. ReGeneration students must respect each other, take responsibility for their actions, and show compassion. Our highly structured school environment builds students' character while creating the space for rigorous academics.


Top Teachers

For our staff, teaching is more than a job. It is a calling. Every adult at ReGeneration will set high standards and work with you to support your child in reaching those standards.

ReGeneration searches the country for teachers who believe in every child's potential, are experts in their subject, and who will go above and beyond every day for your child. We hire only 7% of teachers who apply, train them intensively each summer, and hold professional development every Friday afternoon. Every school principal is a master teacher who observes and coaches teachers every day.


College Prep

A college degree is the door to opportunity. College may feel far off, but we begin preparation in kindergarten so that our students can and will make the journey. Every homeroom takes on a college name and mascot, and middle school students take field trips to college campuses.

Academically, our classes are designed to prepare students for the rigors of college. As our students meet the challenge of their classes, they learn that with enough hard work, they can overcome any obstacle on the path to college graduation.
