CULTURE AND COMMUNITY: Northridge’s culture is rooted in relationships and role models. Friendships are at the core of our approach and make Northridge a wonderful place. We focus on high expectations rather than rules and allow students to be themselves.
OUTSTANDING CHARACTERISTICS: First class faculty, not just teachers, but mentors and role models to the young men at Northridge. We do not allow cell phones to be used on campus because numerous studies have demonstrated that smartphones and related electronics are frequently disruptive to the social development and learning environment for young men. Recent graduates have been admitted to Ivy League schools and top private schools across the country. Gym class every day. Each student is assigned a mentor or “advisor” who meets with them on a weekly or monthly basis.
