You Can Make a Difference!
We believe every young adult has the potential to succeed. Through the Lion Share Annual Fund, we are able to provide a learning environment rich in faith, strong in academics, and abundant in caring faculty and staff -- thereby ensuring each student finds the path to using his or her God-given talents for the good for the world.

As the main vehicle for annual giving, JSerra's Annual Fund enables every member of our community to make a difference. No gift is too small or overlooked in importance. Our students leave JSerra inspired for life -- and it's your gift that makes it happen. Contribute today and support a tradition of excellence since 2003!
