    "I have found Northridge to be a diamond in the rough.As a parent you do the checking and research to find a school that will best address and prepare your son for the future.Northridge has combined many of the values that we are looking at instilling in them.The values of faith,hard work,responsibility, and respect.If you were able to walk the halls at NRP you would see these characteristics modeled by all the teachers and administration.What has always been satisfying to my wife and I is that every teacher that our son has had has always asked how he is doing outside the classroom.They truly are interested in the complete person.Getting to know many of the boys at NRP we would have to say that they are doing a wonderful job alongside the parents at raising really good young men who are very well mannered and respectful.NRP administration as always encouraged a team concept between the school, parents and their boys. NRP does not just teach our faith they live and model it everyday.We could not think of better mentors for our son then the men at Northridge.Making a decision as to where to send your kids to get this kind of instruction is difficult but we are all very happy at NRP."

    "My oldest son is a sophomore at Northridge and had attended since 6th grade.During that time, we have seen administration move the school forward in positive ways.With the introduction of the "hall system" middle school students mix with high school students for special projects and activities.This breaks the barriers between the different age groups and encourages friendships.It has also added numerous leadership opportunities.NRP is truly about educating the "whole" student.My son has grown academically (top-notch college prep curriculum), spiritually (unmatched teaching of the Catholic faith), athletically (outstanding athletic director and coaching staff), and socially (solid friendships formed with friends who share a common set of values). I believe my son, as well as his classmates, will be more than prepared for the future because of the foundation set at NRP. This day in age, when colleges acceptances are extremely selective, NRP students continue to be accepted at some of the country's most prestigious universities. We are constantly stopped and asked by strangers, as well as friends, what we are doing to raise such a fine young man. Our answer is always, "Northridge.""

    "We have two sons at Northridge Prep. I truly believe that by the time they go off to college, they will be ready to meet that responsibility. Mostly, they will be ready because their father and I have done our best to prepare them to be young men of honor and integrity. But I have no doubt that they will be ready because Northridge supported the efforts we made in our own home. We have never looked to keep our sons from the inevitable hardships of the outside world, but rather try to give them the skills and strength of character necessary to meet those hardships. Northridge is helping us develop not just their academic performances, but their moral values. NRP forms leaders of intellectual distinction, men of faith and respect, men who are committed to community service and a loving family. We are not the only family by far who has had a positive experience at our school. The families here believe that when the time comes, their sons too will be ready-and their readiness will be due in great part to Northridge."

    "Our son is a sophomore at NRP and we have found it to be a very good school. Most of the teachers have been excellent. The families are dedicated to the Catholic faith and to the well-rounded education of their sons. They represent a broad cross section ethnically and economically. General mood at the school is a joyful, fired up bunch of people - teachers, families, and boys. On the one hand, we wish they would offer a few more options for sports; on the other hand, the way our culture is obsessed with year-around sports clubs and the like, we've adjusted just fine. NRP does not have the vast resources that some other private schools have, but that's ok as there is a nice "pull together" mentality among the families and teachers. My wife and I would highly recommend Northridge for the formation of virtuous, well-educated young men."

    "Northridge Prep is in a class of its own when it comes to an authentic Catholic education! It truly is the ONLY real Catholic High School in town. The single sex education is the best thing you can do for your sons, coupled with an outstanding all male faculty. My sons would not be of the caliber intellectually, spiritually or morally if not for the support we get from NRP. They are able to participate in sports, clubs, theatre etc.. that they would not be able to if at a large school. While it does not offer all the bells and whistle and endless or should I say excessive extras, it offers a well balanced classical college prep education and prepares the young men to be quality husbands, fathers, professionals and citizens, something or culture could use more of."
