Open House is the time of year when the Padres of the present welcome the Padres of the future. Junior high school students from various Bay Area schools will walk the Serra halls, visit classrooms, listen to teachers talk about the curriculum, and learn about a wide variety of activities and sports programs.
The Serra Band, led by Mr. J. Jordan, will perform while prospective Padres and their parents enter the auditorium. They will be welcomed by President Lars Lund and Principal Barry Thornton.
Guests will take a tour in Serra’s newly opened Center for the Arts & Sciences. The new classrooms are equipped with Interactive Projectors and document camera technology, student laptops and wireless computer connectivity. The center includes a first floor with expanded facilities for the fine and performing arts (including a music rehearsal hall and two large art rooms), and a second floor science wing with five modern lecture laboratories.. An expansion of the Academic Resource Center and a full renovation of the aquatic facilities are also highlights of the new center.
Serra students, under the supervision of Admissions Director Mr. Randy Vogel, will guide the guests on a tour of the school. Visitors will be greeted by teachers and chairpersons of each academic department.
In the Serra Chapel, the Campus Ministry team— led by Campus Minister Kyle Lierk—will discuss the Campus Ministry and Christian Service programs,
Other campus facilities include the Serra locker room and gym, the Danny Frisella Memorial Baseball Stadium, a state of the art weight and wrestling room, the Jesse Freitas football field and an all-weather track.
