COLLEGE GUIDANCE


The college admissions process presents a unique opportunity for a young man to think deeply about his life and future.

COLLEGEGUIDANCEIt naturally prompts him to recognize his strengths and weaknesses, to sharpen his goals and priorities, and to exercise his personal freedom and responsibility.  It is also a process that ought to be personalized to the needs of each student and family. This personal attention is ultimately at the heart of a Northridge education.

Throughout the high school years, our faculty members engage in one-on-one advisory conversations with students and their parents to identify students’ interests and skills and to discuss long-term goals. All students take two semesters of a college preparation course, which meets daily during the junior year.  In this course, students learn about researching majors and careers, preparing for standardized tests, matching one’s interests and abilities to colleges’ offerings, taking charge of the college application process, and transitioning well to campus life.  Upperclassmen also have the opportunity to meet with dozens of college admissions officers who visit our school.  In their senior year, students have frequent contact with the college counselor, who supports them in their application management and decision-making process.

At Northridge, we feel privileged to collaborate with parents throughout this process, viewing it as an important opportunity for young men to continue their character formation as they prepare for greater independence.
