Homecoming and Reunions 

Quick Links



Thank you to all of you who attended the Alumni Games on Easter Saturday. It was great to see Padres from all generations and their families. 

On April 16, we honored three exceptional men - Pete Jensen, Tom MacKenzie and Ralph Stark - with the 2015 In Via Award. This honor is presented each year to a non-alumnus who has led by Christian example and who has shown ongoing support of Serra. This year, we had three award recipients who served our high school for a combined 105 years!

Next up is the Serra Golf Tournament and Ladies' Tennis Tournament on June 22. We are still looking for event sponsors. Please come out for an incredible day, even if you don't play golf. 

Hope to see you there!

For Those About to Rock...We Salute You!
Let There be Rock! The crowd was Thunderstruck on May 1, when Serra's Battle of the Bands featured the one and only AC/DC. For the past nine years, the Battle of the Bands competition has been open to student musicians who are members of local rock bands. Each band and solo artist was asked to perform at least one AC/DC cover song. The competition was judged American Idol-style by members of Serra alumni band Exit 11 - Michael Veizades '12, Zach Agustin '12, Matt Descala '13 and Matt Pritchett '10. Also spotted was alumnus Alex Jordan '08. 

"It takes a tremendous amount of time and energy to make this evening happen," said Serra Activities Director Daniel Landeros. "Our musicians practiced and day and night to present an entertaining evening."
