Core Beliefs


JSerra is an independent Roman Catholic high school that encourages students to pursue personal and professional excellence in life. Guided by the teachings of the Catholic Church, we work in partnership with committed parents and inspirational teachers to form the faith, intellect, and character of our young men and women within a Christ-centered, sacrament-based learning environment.


The definition of key terms in our mission statement helps to further clarify the founding principles and core beliefs of our school.

Faith, intellect, and character truly are the foundation of this school — and the teachers and administrators walk the talk. Messages are thoughtful and show genuine concern for the development of our children.

Statement of Catholic Morality

JSerra Catholic High School was founded to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ rooted in the tradition of the Catholic Church and Sacred Scripture. For this reason, we are committed to presenting Catholic moral teaching with fidelity, and we firmly adhere to our mission in all school endeavors.


All JSerra students and staff are required to take part in certain Catholic traditions and attend various Catholic events, including the weekly all-school Mass. Catholics and non-Catholics alike are expected to show respect for the Church's traditions and refrain from displays of lifestyles or behaviors that conflict with Catholic moral teaching. Fundamental principles of morality can be found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church ("CCC"). Examples include:


These examples are not intended to be an exhaustive list; rather, they are given as particularly relevant illustrations of our beliefs. Under the guidance of the bishop of Orange, JSerra's president and administration are responsible for faithfully safeguarding and transmitting the truth, goodness, and beauty of the Catholic faith.
