Small Learning Communities / Academies
Northridge Academy has implemented Advisories in order to foster a mentor/support/advocate relationship between adults on our campus and our students to support both academic and personal growth. Each advisory grade level is a part of grade level academies (or SLCs, small learning communities).
The 9th Grade Academy is the Bridge Academy to help newcomers explore their future interests. Linda Severino is the facilitator. Bridging the experiences of middle school with high school expectations.
The other three coincide with three major colleges at CSUN, our partnering university. They are:

Changing the World through Education (formerly Careers in Education) -11th Grade, Naira Panasyan is the facilitator. The Education Academy sponsors the Banned Book Week activities every year in Sept.
Health & Human Development -12th Grade, April Alas is the facilitator.
