faith and service
"As I have done for you, you should also do."
Serra provides a superior education that is grounded in the Catholic faith. Students don’t just learn about spirituality and service—they live it. Students deepen their spirituality not only in their theology classes, but across all program areas. By planning and participating in liturgies and prayer services, our Padres grow in their understanding of the Gospel.
Our service-learning program helps students to put their faith into action by making a difference in their local communities and around the world. Padres rebuild homes in New Orleans and work with disabled orphans in Jamaica. Students volunteer at St. Anthony’s Dining Room in San Francisco and serve the less fortunate at homeless shelters. Serra Padres find daily opportunities to explore their faith. High school is a time of change. It is simultaneously exciting and stressful.
At Serra, we educate the whole person—heart, mind, body and soul. Today’s teenagers are bombarded with conflicting messages about human dignity and moral values. The Serra High School community offers students a vision of faith, hope, love, mercy and justice.
Based on Christ's example of servant leadership, we have committed ourselves to serving the students, faculty, and staff of the Serra community with our whole hearts.
