Affording Serra

Catholic college preparatory education is a significant investment that can transform lives and yield positive, lifelong results. Each year, Serra High School awards approximately $3 million in tuition assistance and scholarships. We encourage all prospective families who feel that the cost of education may be a barrier to apply for financial assistance.

Programs & Partnerships

Serra is fortunate to have a number of programs and partnerships that help to make a Serra education affordable for our families. Each year, we award financial aid and academic achievement scholarships to more than 30 percent of our student body.

Raising a family in the Bay Area is not easy. Many families need two incomes, and parents often have multiple jobs.  An affordable plan was set up for our family, and we are extremely grateful. We have been given a gift, and we will cherish that gift every day. "
