The Annual Fund:
Support the Northridge Mission Every Year
The Annual Fund campaign is the most important way to support Northridge Preparatory School. The Annual Fund allows alumni, parents, and friends to support the daily life of Northridge.
The Annual Fund:
- sustains initiatives that promote a vibrant student life,
- allows the school to capitalize on new opportunities and respond to needs,
- supports our faculty,
- offers tuition assistance to 40% of our students, enabling them to receive a Northridge education.
The Annual Fund allows Northridge to cover the actual cost of educating our students since tuition revenue alone is insufficient. In short, gifts to the Annual Fund allow Northridge to carry out its mission.
Our Need to Grow the Annual Fund This Year
Growing the 2017-18 Annual Fund will support our Advisory Program.
The Northridge Advisory program pairs students with faculty who meet individually with them each month. Over time they develop a mentoring relationship that helps students build virtues like toughness and generosity. The program is unique to Northridge and probably the most important way we build men of character.
Unfortunately, our teachers’ current workload makes it difficult for them to meet monthly or give their Advisees the individualized attention they wish. A Northridge faculty member takes a full load of five classes, proctoring assignments and leading a club – on top of the 10-20 students he does his best to mentor. Growing the Annual Fund would allow us to improve the faculty-student ratio, giving our teachers the availability required to mentor at a deeper level. To do this, our goal is to grow the Annual Fund by an additional $250,000 to $500,000.
