Welcome to Academics
Serra’s broad-based, rigorous curriculum serves the needs of a wide range of students. Boys are relational learners who thrive in an active and collaborative learning environment.
Our teachers understand how boys learn and incorporate their knowledge and experience into challenging assignments and classroom activities. Technology is thoughtfully and purposefully integrated into the curriculum through the Google School platform. Serra students learn to use technology ethically and are prepared for the university environment.
Serra's academic program provides a college-preparatory education that prepares each student for the college that best meets his goals and interests. One hundred percent of our graduates exceed the minimum course requirements set for the California State Universities and the University of California. In addition, 100 percent of our Serra Padres are accepted to colleges throughout the country.
Our multilevel academic program allows students to choose classes that appropriately challenge them in a balanced and healthy way. Our faculty and counselors are professional educators, subject-matter experts and dedicated mentors who help students develop intellectual wisdom, moral strength and emotional depth.
Meet our outstanding teachers . . .
