JSerra Sponsors China Environment Forum

June 7, 2012 | By | Reply More

JSerra Catholic High School has agreed to help sponsor the Second International Environment Forum. In fact, as the forum date rapidly approaches (June 15, 2012), the International Energy Alliance fundraising committee is receiving funding from many last minute sponsors for this important forum on the environment, and in particular, energy.

JSerra Catholic High School, simply known as JSerra by its students, has been open for instruction for nine years and has a student population of about eleven hundred students. Located in beautiful Southern California, only a few miles from the Pacific Ocean, this school is gaining notoriety for its strong academics with students gaining entrance into highly ranked Universities. In fact, JSerra has been named to the Catholic High School Honor Roll’s Top fifty list for three consecutive years.

But one of the most impressive attributes JSerra has to offer is its strong sports program. Its world-class athletic complex is among the best in the nation and reflects its strong commitment to high school athletics.  At a cost of forty million dollars, the complex is situated on twenty-nine acres of land and includes: a two thousand seat gymnasium; an Olympic-class aquatics center; a fully-equipped state-of-the-art training center; Varsity and Junior Varsity softball fields, Varsity and Junior Varsity baseball fields, five soccer fields, and football and lacrosse fields (all utilizing artificial turf for maximum safety and playability); six tennis courts (including one stadium court); a synthetic running track; boys and girls trainer facilities; and two sand volleyball courts. Enough said!

JSerra also has a program specifically for international students. With an international student population of fifty, the international/domestic population is carefully balanced so that JSerra’s domestic students benefit by learning about people from other cultures, and the international students definitely get to experience an American education, says Richard Woo, the school’s international director.

The IEA is very grateful for JSerra’s commitment to the environment as is demonstrated by this sponsorship. It should also be noted that JSerra has an energy club on campus that is an official member of the IEA.

I am in my second year of a five year combination BS physics/math and MS systems engineering program offered jointly through Haverford College and UPenn. Helping my community is a lot of fun and means a great deal to me. Through the IEA and other efforts, I've come to learn how much power many can have when there is a clear positive vision, motivation and momentum.
