Mrs. Trudell's Message


welcome to
St. junipero serra

I am honored, humbled and truly blessed to serve the St. Junipero Serra Catholic School community as President. St. Junipero Serra Catholic School is a vibrant Catholic school located in the beautiful hills of Rancho Santa Margarita California. Since our founding in 1995, we remain committed to providing a Catholic school education to any child who desires one. Our doors are open to those in our Catholic parish community and surrounding Christian communities providing an evangelizing and welcoming environment to all.

Modeling the Gospel values Jesus teaches us, we educate our students in an environment rooted in our Catholic faith and dedicated to providing a multitude of academic programs to meet the diverse needs of all learners.

St. Junipero Serra Catholic is privileged to serve a large, varied parent and student community. We govern our dynamic school utilizing the Jesuit President/Principal model, allowing us to be personally attentive to all staff, students and families. As President, I have the distinct honor to ensure that our Charism, Vision and Mission statements are present in all areas of the school including our Catholic identity, curricular programs, co-curricular programs, financial policies and our public presence in the community. I partner with qualified, enthusiastic and dedicated principals, vice-presidents, directors, teachers and staff to implement our Charism, Vision and Mission. This partnership is not complete, however, without the commitment, love, devotion and perseverance of our parent leadership and the entire parent community. We were founded by parents and we remain strong and successful because of our parents. It is more than an opportunity; it is a joyful pleasure as President to work so closely with our parent community.

For 30 years I have ministered in Catholic schools in California as a principal and currently as president. My experience has afforded me multiple opportunities to work with many administrators, teachers and staff to support our core mission as Catholic schools that build faith-filled, prepared leaders for the future, where they shine the light of Christ to all they meet, including family, friends, co-workers, and the broader community. There is no greater privilege than to serve our Church as President of this amazing educational institution.

Mrs. Angeline Trudell
