U.S. Senator Charles Schumer addresses the crowd gathered for Regis’s rededication.

On Monday September, 15, 2014, Fr. Philip G. Judge, SJ, president of Regis High School, welcomed a large crowd to witness the rededication of Regis as a New York City landmark. Among the crowd were students, faculty members, local media outlets and politicians including U.S. Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) and U.S. Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY).

“Regis is a school that teaches values,” said Senator Schumer while addressing the audience. “Values that instill a sense of duty to enrich the lives of others. And that is the inestimable value of a Jesuit education. It’s a holistic education. An education that nurtures the man as well as the mind. And that’s the spirit of the Jesuit order.”
