Regent Senior Class of 2022
The diligent, dutiful, and delightful Class of 2022, comprised of 25 accomplished individuals, has blessed our school throughout their years at Regent with their unique personalities and God-given talents. Collectively, they have an average ACT score of 28.1 (which surpasses the latest national average by 7.8 points). Fourteen of these students are Oklahoma Academic Scholars (3.7 unweighted GPA and 27+ on the ACT or 1200+ on the SAT) and three achieved the high honor of being National Merit Scholars. This year's group of seniors includes an All-State Band percussionist, gifted worship leaders, exceptional artists and performers, and more who have invested their time and further developed their talent through our fine arts programs. This group of students has been a part of numerous state team and individual titles (academic and athletic), including the Girls Cross Country team and Girls Golf individual titles this year, as well as state runner-up finishes including Academic Bowl, Debate, Boys Tennis, and Volleyball this year. Four of these athletes have signed to play their respective sport in college. While their accomplishments are significant, the character and leadership they have displayed have made an even deeper impact. We look forward to celebrating this group of seniors and their Regent careers in the coming days! Congratulations!
We love you Senior Class of 2022!
