At Serra, all students fit in and find their niche, regardless of their skills and interests. All of the teachers at Serra are completely dedicated to the success of the students, and create a rigorous but very educational learning environment. Over the past few years, the school has continued to increase their number of college-level courses, and many students are now graduating from high school with a full year of college credit, entering into college as a sophomore. Serra is continuing to renovate their facilities, upgrading part of the building nearly every year. They are also continuing to grow their athletic programs and extracurricular activities as demands rise. I would strongly suggest Serra to any and all families looking for a great, private school education in the Mon Valley.
