Regis High School is a private Jesuit university-preparatory school for Roman Catholic young men located on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Annual class enrollment is limited to approximately 135 male students from the New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut tri-state area. The school's motto, "Deo et Patriae" (For God and Country), speaks to its intention to produce men committed to devoting the advantages of their education to the service of society and the underprivileged. The tuition-free school has a track record of placing many of its graduates at selective colleges and universities. In September 2015 Niche ranked it the top Catholic high school in the United States.HistoryRegis High School was founded in 1914, through the financial bequest of a single formerly anonymous benefactress: Julia M. Grant, the widow of Mayor Hugh J. Grant. She stipulated that her gift be used to build a Jesuit high school providing a free education for Catholic boys with special consideration given to those who could not otherwise afford a Catholic education. The school continues that policy and does not charge tuition. The Grants' former home is the residence of the Vatican Observer to the United Nations, where the pope stays when he visits New York City.
