Applications For Next Year Are Still Being Accepted In The Lower Grades! Do You Have Any Interested Friends Or Family?

As mentioned during the school year, we are changing the name of the 4-year-old classes to Pre-K.  Pre-K is still part of preschool licensing. We are so excited to announce that we are adding an additional Pre-K class. Different day options will be available! Mrs. Jessica Wolf will be our new Pre-K teacher for the additional classroom. We are also adding an additional TK class and lowering the teacher/student ratio for TK, a direct result of staff and parental input. Mrs. Dottie Dennehy and Miss Angela Escudero will be our TK teachers. Our Early Childhood Program is exceptional --won't you recommend a friend!

For admissions information, please contact Shirley Merchant at smerchant@serraschool.org or by calling 949-888-1990, ext. 123.
