Dear Elementary School and Academy Principals,

Below is a reminder from Alan Garcia, REACH Assistant Director at Regis, about the upcoming deadline to nominate a 5th grade boy for the REACH program.

If you are unfamiliar with REACH, it is a free 3-year middle school enrichment program for low-income/first generation Catholic families from the greater NYC metropolitan area. Students enter REACH as rising 6th graders (the summer between the 5th-6th  grade) and remain in the program until they graduate from your school/academy’s 8th grade.  The program takes place during the summer and on Saturdays during the academic year.  REACH focuses on academics, character formation, and spiritual development.


The REACH Program at Regis High School is now accepting nominations through Feb 1st!

REACH is a free high school prep program that prepares middle school boys for admission to Regis and other top Catholic high schools.

To qualify, students must:

·         Be a 5th grade, Catholic boy (currently enrolled in the 5th grade)
·         Have high grades and test scores
·         Live in NYC (and surrounding areas) and come from a family with demonstrated financial need

To nominate a student, simply visit

Mr. Anthony Biscione
Senior Deputy Superintendent of Schools
