Regina girls are leaders. They exude leadership because it is instilled in them from the moment they first walk through the halls.
Leadership is a trending topic in today’s world. CEOs and universities speak about the value of a true leader and the skills necessary to lead a successful organization. Regina Dominican is at the forefront of this trend by providing leadership opportunities and lessons at the college preparatory school level.
When the Leadership Institute was created, its vision was to provide a program that would distinguish Regina graduates from their peers by fostering management skills and creating unique experiences. The vision was also to set Regina Dominican apart from all other institutions.
This vision has become a reality for Regina Dominican students. The Class of 2016 is the first class to experience the Leadership Institute for all four years of their high school experience. The results are visible in their accolades and matriculation. The graduating Leadership Scholars of 2016 were accepted to some of the most prestigious universities in the nation.
For example, our Leadership Scholars were accepted into:
- Duke University
- Johns Hopkins University
- Northwestern University
- Vanderbilt University
- Georgetown University
- Cornell University
- And more!
These results are exciting for Regina Dominican. Universities recognize the Leadership Institute and the Scholars Program as a rigorous and distinguishable program, giving an edge to graduates in the highly competitive college environment.
What Our Students Think
“Although I have only spent two years in the Leadership Institute, I can honestly say that it has changed my life. I know my strengths and understand what I must do to overcome my weaknesses. More than that, I have learned the importance of individualism. I am not afraid to show people who I truly am. It has changed my life and for that I am grateful.”

“The Leadership Institute has not only helped to shape my leadership skills but also has opened the door to numerous opportunities for me in the future. For example, the paper I wrote for my Leadership Scholar Project II has grabbed the attention of multiple professionals. It is going to be published to help raise awareness on the effect that technology has on developing brains. I am truly honored to have these opportunities and to be a part of this amazing program.”
