Admissions Process & Information

Prospective families are encouraged to contact our admissions team to schedule a campus tour, schedule a phone call and learn more about St. Junipero Serra Catholic School.

Once families are ready to move forward with their application to St. Junipero Serra Catholic School, they will need to complete an online application. The online application can be saved, allowing you to stop at any point and continue when you are ready to do so. 

You will need to upload the following scanned documents during the online application process:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Current Immunization Records (from your Doctor)
  • Report Cards
  • Standardized Testing, if applicable
  • Photo of Applicant

Once you submit an online application, our team will be notified. Admissions will confirm receipt of the application within 1-2 business days. Once received, the applications will be sent internally for review. Please allow 1-3 business days. 

Once you have been accepted, you will be notified via email with an official acceptance letter. You will be asked to complete the final step of admissions - enrolling at St. Junipero Serra Catholic School!

The acceptance letter will have detailed instructions on finalizing your enrollment. This process takes about 15 minutes and will include a financial commitment. All legal guardians and parents must be the primary stakeholders. If your finances will be covered by another family member, please let us know after you complete enrollment.

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a Serra Bear? The best way to discover what life is like at St. Serra is to shadow our school! We will match your child with a current St. Serra student who shares their interests. Your child will have the opportunity to ask questions, tour our campus, attend classes, and gain insight into student life at St. Serra!  Please contact the Admissions Office at admissions@serraschool.org to schedule a visit!

Preference in admission shall be given to practicing members of the four Catholic Parish communities: Holy Trinity, San Francisco Solano, Santiago de Compostela and St. Kilian. Parents must subscribe to the school’s philosophy and agree to abide by the educational policies and regulations of the school.

St. Junipero Serra Catholic Preschool will consider applications from outside our parish communities. Siblings of current students are given priority in admissions.
