Servite’s theatre program (Tri-School Theatre) is a charter program conducted jointly with Connelly and Rosary High Schools. Unique in that it combines three separate high schools, the program emphasizes the philosophy of process, discipline, and professionalism in a loving, nurturing, creative environment. Tri-School Theatre is an educational Theatre ministry that uses the performing arts as a way for students to discover themselves and to nurture their God-given talents through process-oriented training in a Christ-centered environment.
Rosary Alumna Amy Luskey-Barth who holds a BFA from the USC School of Theatre established the Tri-School Program in 1989. A charter was developed through the combined efforts of the administrations of each school in 1994, formally establishing the Tri-School Theatre Program at Connelly, Rosary and Servite High Schools. Since its inception, the program has grown into a four-year Performing Arts Conservatory with an individualized mentorship program. Classes are offered in acting, musical theatre and technical theatre. The Conservatory operates out of the 988-seat, fully equipped Servite Theatre. The program is run by Rosary Alumna Hillary Pearson, Executive Artistic Director, who holds a BA from the UCLA School of Theatre Film and Television. Tri-School’s Technical Director is Servite Alum Isaac Gleason.

In February of 1995, the Tri-School Theatre Thespians performed an excerpt of Yearbook at the California State Thespian Festival and won 1st place for their performance, garnering them an invitation to perform a 1/2 hour excerpt from the show at the International Thespian Festival in Lincoln, Nebraska.

In 2003, Tri-School Theatre returned to the main stage with its premier song and dance group A Joyful Noise in "A Sentimental Journey."

Implemented school-wide in the 2007 - 2008 school year, the Priory System aims to form faith-filled leaders at Servite. Each week during a block period, the 8 priors plan an activity that increases leadership ability, improves character, or serves others. Students are placed in 48 homerooms, 6 per priory. During the 2007 - 2008 school year, vicars were in charge of these homerooms. There were 3 assistant priors that performed duties delegated to them by the prior. Beginning in the 2008-2009 school year, assistant priors assumed responsibility over homerooms and the vicar position was eliminated.
Priory leadership positions consist of four Generalate positions, eight Prior positions, and forty-eight Assistant Prior positions. The Priory System also consists of seven committees, which each consist of one Committee Chairman and one member from each priory. The entire Priory Leadership council meets weekly to plan Priory periods, school activities, and discuss ways to improve the Formation experience. In addition, the Generalate is currently in the process of approving a Priory Constitution to lay down the positions and duties of each leadership member.
The priories compete with each other for priory points, which are distributed by teachers to individual students or homerooms as recognition for good deeds. The priories participate in yearly activities such as raising money for Christmas gifts for disadvantaged families, and the Priories also weekly support a school-run soup kitchen, with food or monetary donations from students, parents, and corporations, cooking food and serving it to the homeless as part of Her Servant's Kitchen.
Details about the Priory System can be found at the Servite Priory website
