    "A recent graduate of Northridge Prep, I still consider myself to be a Northridge man. When I was looking for a high school, its academics were key. Northridge routinely sends students to stellar colleges including Stanford, Notre Dame, Northwestern, U of C, and Illinois. Importantly, service is also a big part of the Northridge community. An example is the all-school volunteer program with Misericordia--a community of care for people with disabilities. Instead of merely focusing on preparing your sons for college, Northridge centers on the formation of the whole person, building the spirit as well as the mind. The amazing faculty ensures that no one falls through the cracks; you are not just a face in the halls, and the teachers are not just voices in the front of the classroom. My teachers made me believe I could go anywhere and do anything. I believe choosing Northridge was best decision of my life. This school provided me a motivating environment and challenged me to reach toward academic and spiritual heights I could never have dreamed of anywhere else. Although I am now a freshman at my first-choice college (go Cardinal!), I am now and will always be a Northridge man."

    "I'm a parent of a 10th grade student at Northridge. I feel so fortunate to be apart of this community. Northridge has not only fostered my son in his academics but also as young man looking to the future. I have two older children who attended other middle and high schools. Their experience was not nearly as positive as our Northridge experience. At Northridge we have faculty who go above and beyond what most schools require. Most of the faculty teach the students all through middle school in one given subject. The same is in High school. This allows for a very unique relationship and familiarity to develop. The teacher knows the strength and weaknesses of each student, thus allowing them to focus on where the student may need help . I would highly recommend Northridge prep."

    "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."
