Portrait of a Serra Graduate
Why Serra


A Padre's Journey . . .

Your journey is all your own at Serra, even if you are the fifth Padre in your family to graduate from Serra.

What you do at Serra depends completely on what you want to pursue. 

Every journey begins with the first step, but that step can be intimidating to make. 

Cory Syme knows that all too well. After graduating from Crocker Middle School in Hillsborough, Cory wasn’t sure he wanted to pursue a private, gender specific education. He had to be convinced that Serra could bring him out of his shell. 

Overcoming shyness, finding your inner voice and taking charge of your journey takes a lot of strength. Hear how Cory chose to pilot his journey and get involved at Serra High School.
