Regina High School (RHS) is a Roman Catholic, private, four year college preparatory high school for girls in Warren, Michigan in Metro Detroit. From the school's founding in 1956 through June, 2007, Regina was located in Harper Woods, but moved to Warren at the start of the 2007-2008 school year. Located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit, Regina is sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph, Third Order of St. Francis. The high school is fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and is a member of the National Catholic Education Association and the Michigan Association of Non-Public Schools.

Regina High School began as a dream of Cardinal Edward Mooney of Detroit. This dream was realized when Regina opened in September 1956.

Regina's brother school was formerly Notre Dame High School in Harper Woods, which closed in 2005. Since moving to Warren in 2007, De La Salle has become its brother school.[citation needed]
