Alumni Scholarship

There are not many opportunities to invest in a young person and witness the results of your investment. Serra’s Invest in Education program gives you that opportunity.


Students at Serra have a record of producing stunning academic success. This is easily measured by our students annual College and University acceptance record.  


Our difficulty is getting many of our students through Serra. Each year we have students drop out not because they are unable to perform academically; they drop out because their households do not have the resources for tuition. All of our households pay to the level they can. However, 80% of our students have a documented need for tuition assistance.
