Northridge Learning Center started in 1993 by Dixie Evans as a one-to-one tutoring service for all ages. Ms. Evans first student was a 53 year old father of 5 who had never learned to read. Ms. Evans expanded academics to include summer tutoring programs for elementary aged children, tutoring and homework help for high school students, and testing/tutoring for several agency clients. Northridge became accredited in the early 2000's and began working with area high schools to offer recovery and original high school credit. For the next decade, Northridge continued to expand in size to serve more clients and to offer Adult Education Diplomas.
