A Message from Serra's President Mr. Lars Lund
When Father Junípero Serra began a bold journey to California more than 200 years ago, he grew in faith and wisdom. He became a leader who made a difference in the lives of all those he met along the way.
A freshman arriving at Serra High School on his first day begins his own unique journey, one in which he will grow in heart, mind, body and soul and achieve things he never thought possible.
In 1944, Junípero Serra High School opened its doors with a bold vision— to be the very best possible Catholic college preparatory school for young men. Since then, this vision has been realized by more than 10,000 Padres who are proud to call Serra their alma mater.
Serra remains faithful to its original vision. It is Serra’s mission to educate Men of Faith, Wisdom and Service—leaders who care about their communities and make a difference in the world. Serra prepares its students not only for the rigors of college and university, but for the challenges and opportunities of adulthood in the 21st century.
Our outstanding programs and exciting new facilities build on Serra’s proud history of excellence and achievement. Serra High School promotes a climate of friendship and camaraderie, and provides each student with an environment where he can achieve the greatness to which God has called him. Welcome to our website. I hope that it will inspire you to visit our campus and imagine the possibilities at Serra.
