What Northland means to me:
Northland is answered prayer to my family and me. My wife and I take education seriously and have tried almost every type: public schools, private schools, Department of Defense Schools, and home-schooled, as we traveled extensively in the military. We did a lot of praying and research before we chose Northland. We found what we were looking for academically, spiritually and athletically with excellent programs run by leaders who really care about developing students to glorify the Lord in all things. We immediately felt accepted and welcome at Northland. The staff and faculty as well as the parents have really made our time at Northland a genuine blessing.

What Northland means to me: With five kids, my husband and I are entering our 19th year as a Northland family. Before finding Northland, we tried other schools, public and private around Houston. Once we found the solid academics and strong Christian environment unique to Northland, we made it our home. From the nurturing start in the preschool program to the careful direction for college placement, Northland has led my children to become the educated and compassionate people of character they are today.

What Northland means to me
Northland's welcoming, accepting environment made it easy for my husband and me as parents to entrust the educational and spiritual development of our daughter with the faculty and staff. The special young lady she has become is in no small part due to the constant encouragement she received at Northland to question, challenge, and improve herself and to make a difference in the world. I'm seeing the same growth in my three grandchildren who are current Northland students.

Preparing students for college and career is only a part of the Northland mission. There is so much more to the development of young people that Northland provides.
