Regina Coeli School community dedicates itself to uphold the philosophy of the Diocese of Toledo. We are committed to a standard of excellence which enables our students to develop intellectually and spiritually within the context of Gospel Values. Our faculty and staff accept the challenge to co-operate with the parents and guardians to empower all students to become intelligent, responsible Christian members of society.



Mission Statement

Regina Coeli School, a faith community of parents/guardians, faculty, staff and students exists to provide a Christ-centered education that will serve, develop, support and challenge our children spiritually, academically, culturally, socially and physically.

Belief Statement

Belief Statement: Working in partnership with the parish of Regina Coeli and the families of our students, we as a school endeavor to prepare students to hear the message of the Gospel, seek a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and share in a commitment of love and service of God and others in order to transform self and society.

*We believe we are called to be disciples of Jesus Christ.
*We believe each child is unique in the eyes of God.
*We believe family is the foundation of Christian education.
*We believe the values we teach are for character development and a call to holiness.
*We believe all students are capable of learning and instruction must provide for the learning styles of all students.




Religious Education

The fundamental purpose of Regina Coeli School is religious education. Students are taught Catholic Christian doctrine in an atmosphere that reflects love, care and respect for the uniqueness of each person. The gifts and talents each of us possess are the means through which our commitment to the Christian challenge of service to others can be fulfilled. We are called to help our children recognize and develop their gifts and talents. We are called to foster in our children a sense of Christian responsibility and social justice. We are called to be witnesses to our Catholic faith, to teach by example and to model Christian qualities. We are called to teach that which is most difficult of teachings - the simple message of love. All students (Catholic and Non-Catholic) are required to participate in religious instruction, prayer, liturgy and related religious activities. Each Class will incorporate service experience into the religious experience.


Preparation for the reception of sacraments is directed by the respective teachers under the Director of Religious Education. Because parents are the primary educators in the religious training of their children, it is important that they work with the teachers and the religious office to facilitate this process.
Students in the second grade are prepared for the reception of the Sacrament of Reconciliation and their First Communion. Students in the seventh grade are prepared for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation in eighth grade.
During Advent and Lent, the Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered. Parents are also encouraged to take their children as a family on Saturdays.

Weekly Eucharistic Celebrations

Parents are welcome to celebrate the Eucharist each week with the students and faculty. Masses will be scheduled on the monthly calendars.

Church Envelopes

Students are encouraged to develop the habit of sacrificial giving by using their envelopes at the weekend Masses.




Regina Coeli School follows the Diocesan Course of Study which is in compliance with the Ohio Minimum Standards and Ohio Revised Code.
Homework is an essential part of our educational program. Your child needs additional time reviewing, practicing, researching, reading and studying in order to understand teh concepts and master the skills required for their grade.
Suggested time guidelines:

K-2 = 30 minutes per night
3-5 = 60 minutes per night
6-8 = 90 minutes per night

It is the teacher's responsibility to assign homework that is productive, meaniful and developmentally appropriate. Teachers will cooperate with eachother to coordinate the proper amount. Homework is your child's responsibility: not the parent's.

School Advisory Council

The Regina Coeli School Advisory Council advises the Pastor and Principal on matters of the school. The Advisory Council is not a decision making body. It may present, recommend or provide input regarding the school to the Pastor and the Principal.
If you have concerns with a teacher, or school policy, your first step is to talk to the teacher. If you do not receive a satisfactory reply, then your next step is to talk to the Principal. If this also does not meet your needs, your final step is to bring your concern to the Pastor. Members of the School Advisory Council do not serve the function of arbitration.





Regina Coeli Staff consists of very experienced, certified and caring individuals. Our staff has over 200 teaching-years of combined experience. We feel we have assembled the best people in the area to guide your children through their education.
