- JSerra offers a college preparatory curriculum integrated with the traditions and beliefs of the Roman Catholic doctrine. We strive to provide a well-rounded education putting an emphasis on the formation of the whole person - intellectually, spiritually, physically, and emotionally. The faculty creates a learning environment where students and their parents are encouraged to work cooperatively with the administration and teachers. We offer four magnet programs which help prepare students for the rigors of advanced education: Business Magnet Program, Engineering Magnet Program, Pre-Law Professional Magnet Program, and the Pre-Medical Professional Magnet Program. Religious education, the use of technology, extracurricular activities, and active involvement in Christian service projects are important facets in the students' overall educational experience.
