Meet our Coaches

 
Scott Altenberg has been at Serra High School for 26 years (21 as head coach) and I am very proud of what we do at Serra. A successful program needs not only great student-athletes and quality coaching, but also dedicated supporters as well. Academically, we send 100% of our students to college. Athletically, we have a rich tradition of C.I.F championships, Division 1 scholarships, and have been blessed to have a number of NFL players as well.
