Northridge Preparatory School’s mission “to build men of intellect and character who love God” is focused on educating the whole person. Northridge is a partnership between parents and educators dedicated to raising noble young men that strive to live by the highest ideals in life: to be a great father, to become an outstanding professional, and to embrace God's will in their lives.


Much of a student’s character development takes place beyond the classroom. Besides the Advisory Program, Northridge has designed their athletic, elective, and extracurricular programs as a way to require commitments and give responsibility to students -- an important feature on the path to manhood. Northridge ensures that the stage, the woodshop, the basketball court, and every club, sport, and activity builds character.
