In 1956 Regina began its faith filled academic mission under the leadership of Fr. Raymond Pacha to accommodate the overflowing classrooms of St. Mary’s and St. Patrick’s Catholic Schools in Iowa City. After an aggressive campaign and the diligent efforts of parish volunteers. Regina High School opens its doors to 295 students in 1958.
In 1962, Regina completed construction on its first athletic field. Since then, Regina has grown to become an all-inclusive Pre-K through 12 school. Known today as the Regina Catholic Education Center we employ over 200 faculty and staff members that serve over 950 students.
