OUR MISSION:  Regents School of Austin incorporates an academic and college advising program in which all students are assisted individually and developmentally as they prepare for and transition to college. Each student is provided with personalized attention and direction in exploring the optimal number and type of post-secondary educational options. Our motto is "College is a match to be made, not a trophy to be won". The college admission process as it pertains to equipping students for their future is of greater value than particular outcomes.
