"Finishing the Foundation"
Preliminary architectural rendering of the courtyard and gymnasium entrance
Welcome to our current campaign, "Finishing the Foundation"! As Regent continues to grow, it is our goal to provide a foundation for years to come! The campaign will help Regent complete the campus and solidify our presence as an excellent classical Christian educational institution in Oklahoma. Our goal is to build financial security and to further enhance our students' learning environment by transforming the existing facility and grounds into that of a vibrant school campus.
The "Finishing the Foundation" program is a wonderful and unique opportunity to mark your legacy, that of a family member, or someone with Regent ties. With a gift of $3,600, you can reserve a personalized stone marker in the courtyard in front of the new gymnasium. Contact the Development Office at (918) 663-1002 for more information.
