    JSerra has an incredible family atmosphere! The staff and students are friendly, helpful, and really care. I have worked at four other schools, and this is by far the most competent faculty I have had the joy to work with. They love teaching and love young people, know their subject matter, and give students an exceptional learning experience. I am so grateful to be a part of Lion Nation!

    I chose to attend JSerra Catholic High School because I felt I would be seen as more than just a number. I do not easily stand out in the classroom. I am hesitant to ask questions in class, preferring to speak to teachers one on one. JSerra’s small student body allows teachers to connect with each student. My teachers continuously offered their time before and after school to answer any questions and provide additional help. Being a senior, I have readily taken advantage of JSerra's counselors. The counselors put college into the minds of students beginning freshman year. Setting college as my goal early on, has greatly motivated my academic performance. The counseling department puts on a college fair each year. Additionally, seniors receive the chance to have their college essays reviewed by admissions representatives from colleges across the country. These opportunities, along with my counselor’s guidance, have led me to find the university I will call home in the fall.
    I am a current junior at JSerra Catholic High School and could not be happier. It was absolutely the best choice I made as an eighth-grader to attend. Beyond the amazing academics, teachers, facilities, and extracurriculars JSerra fosters a strong community that I am so happy and proud to be apart of!
