Welcome to the St. Junipero Serra Institute’s Curriculum page. We’re glad you are here to learn more about your Catholic faith. On this page you will find a breakdown of the two ways the institute offers classes: Certification and Audit (personal growth). Please click on the button that best fits your needs.


  • For those interested in receiving a certification, accreditation, or volunteering within the parish mission.
  • Student requirements: Participate in all sessions and write a two-page paper at the conclusion of each six-week course (one-page for Level One: Catechism). At the completion of Level III, an exit interview with the Department Director of Evangelization and Catechesis is required for certification.

  • For those wanting to take courses for the purpose of deepening their knowledge and faith.
  • Student requirements: There are no requirements. You are free to attend for your own benefit, although you must take the levels in order.
