JSerra is committed to providing a supportive academic environment that enables all students to achieve both their academic and spiritual potential.

As each student develops and learns at an individual pace, we recognize that due to diagnosed learning differences, many may benefit from supplemental academic support in order to gain equitable access to their education.

To meet this need, JSerra has developed the Student Educational Resource Program (SERP) to support our students with documented learning differences. SERP takes a collaborative approach with teachers, students and families to not only provide them with the academic support they need, but to also promote student self-esteem, self-advocacy and a positive attitude toward their education and the learning process.

SERP Study Skills Course

This is a dedicated resource period provided to all SERP students in lieu of an elective. Each class operates in a small-group environment (maximum 10:2 ratio with 5:1 small-group instruction) with a purpose to provide essential skills for success in a rigorous academic environment.

Through the Study Skills Course, students will:

  • Receive academic case-management and monitoring
  • Be provided access to curriculum support in Theology, English, Social Studies, Math, and Science
  • Establish effective study skills and academic habits
  • Learn organization, planning, prioritizing, and time management skills
  • Increase their ability for metacognition and synthesizing of information
  • Foster independence, confidence and self-advocacy
  • Develop flexibility, resiliency and developing a growth mindset

Testing Center

The JSerra Testing Center provides a distraction-limited, small-group environment for all SERP students. The Testing Center is open during all seven periods of the day, as well as from 3:00-4:00 p.m. after school.


Learn more by contacting SERP Director Drew Clute at 949.493.9307 Ext. 1229 or dclute@jserra.org.
