Welcome to St. Monica Catholic High School, a place where All Are Welcome! I am Mr. Rick Bruce, SMCHS Program Administration and Facilities Associate and Girls' Tennis and Boys' Tennis coach. Serving the students of St. Monica Catholic High School is truly a blessing in my life.
I became a teacher right out of college in 1977 and this is my 43rd year as an educator with the last 19 here at St. Monica. I was born in South Texas and moved to California 18 years ago. Aside from my vocation as a catholic educator, my family and tennis are my passions. I played college tennis in the mid 70's and have coached in one way or another for the last 43 years. My wife and I have been married for 35 wonderful years and we have two adult children, ages 27 & 25. They are the joys of my life. I am very excited about year 19 here at St. Monica Catholic High School and look forward to spending time with our awesome students and faculty. St. Monica, Pray for Us!
