School Notes:

  • Rooted in faith and vision, the community of Serra Catholic School welcomes children from the parishes of St. Kilian, San Francisco Solano, Santiago de Compostela, and Holy Trinity. Inspired by the Gospel values and in a Christ-centered enviornment, we promote student success through challenging programs that meet the diverse learning needs and unique potential of the whole child.  We aspire to provide the foundation of our students to become compassionate Catholic leaders of the future living our Schoolwide Learning Expectations on a baily basis: a Catholic faith-filled life and missionary spirit, a life-long love of learning, a reverence for one’s own physical being, a positive and realistic self-image, and a willingness to share one’s God-given gifts.
