Grow to Be the Man God Created Him to Be

Northridge offers all students the option of daily Mass, the sacrament of Confession, and the opportunity for spiritual guidance from a full-time chaplain.



Be Advised and Mentored Each Year

At Northridge, each student is matched with a dedicated faculty advisor who collaborates with the student and his family to facilitate well-rounded personal development. Regular one-on-one meetings help to foster self-knowledge, academic achievement, and encourage students in their pursuit of virtue.

In Their Own Words


People my age don't usually want to go to school. What's surprising about Northridge is how much we like being around our teachers and classmates. That's what Northridge is about.


8th Grade

There's so many opportunities to be a leader here and grow as a person. In college, I'm most excited about meeting new people and growing in my faith. There's Mass every day there, like Northridge.

The teachers here are always willing to listen and make a helpful suggestion. It's a great community of parents. You walk in and there's a warmth and a trust in being a part of the community.
