We offer several options to help make Northridge affordable.
Hosting an International Student
Northridge families can host one of Northridge’s international students. Hosting for a full year provides families a $11,100 tuition reduction; semester or quarter options are available at pro-rated amounts. Many find that by hosting an international student they do not need to apply for further aid. For more information, please contact Mr. Hugo Chong, Director of Business Operations, at (847) 375-0600 ext. 432 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Northridge offers two tuition discounts:
- A Sibling Discount to families with multiple children at either Northridge, the Embers or the Willows Academy. Details are explained in this document: Sibling Discount Details. Download and open this Excel file to help calculate your discount.
- A First Responder Discount of $5,000 per student, for families where the primary source of income comes from a parent employed full time as a first responder (police, fire, or paramedic). More details in this document.
Note: a family can apply either for a discount or financial aid, but not both. Discounts subject to change each year.
Separate application. Northridge offers financial aid based on a family’s financial need. The process of applying for financial aid is separate from applying for admission to the school, because Northridge makes the two decisions independently. If you would like to apply for financial aid, you should do so at the same time as you apply for admission to the school. Note: Families who apply for financial aid receive priority in request for hosting international students.
Application Process. We have a new portal to apply for financial aid. We are no longer using TADs. Starting in January 2020, financial aid applications should be submitted through Smart Aid: https://smartaidforparents.com. Create an account, go through all the steps, and in one of the last steps you select Northridge Preparatory School as the recipient of your application. To help find Northridge in their system, you can use our school code: 14169. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Hugo Chong, at (847) 375-0600 ext. 432 or email@example.com.
Important Note: We will not give financial aid awards until a student has completed and been accepted to Northridge through the admissions process.
