Parent university a resource for parents raising noble young men

Northridge’s Parent University is a resource for raising a noble young man.

Through lectures, workshops, reading groups and online resources, Parent University provides parents with best practices and practical approaches for navigating the many challenges they face in raising children.

Through its events, Parent University helps foster a community of parents who can share ideas, experiences and friendship.

Parent Lecture Series



The Parent Lecture Series brings professionals from around the country to speak about topics related to building young men of intellect and character who love God. These speakers are selected for their mastery of the subject and excellent delivery. They will bring helpful insights and foster dialogue about key aspects of raising noble young men.

This Lecture Series aims to inspire and inform the whole community. All three events are open to the public, and we hope to see you there. Below, you’ll find details about each speaker and their presentation.
