The Orange County Register talks about the new Business Magnet Program and partnership with The Paul Merage School of business at UC Irvine.

JSerra Catholic High School in San Juan Capistrano has expanded its magnet educational programs to include a business track, collaborating with the Paul Merage School of Business at UC Irvine to develop and implement a business-focused curriculum.

When they graduate, business magnet students, like students in JSerra’s medical magnet program withMission Hospital, will receive a special citation on their diplomas and be prepared to compete at the nation’s most prestigious business schools, said Frank Talarico, JSerra’s president and chief executive.

The school will begin interviewing student applicants early this year. Eighth-graders interested in applying should contact the admissions office, the school said.

JSerra also is developing magnet programs in law and engineering, Talarico said. read all the latest here.
