Friends Of Northside
Friends of Northside (FON) is the “one stop shop” for Northside parents to get involved & help benefit the entire NCP community. We facilitate communication between parents and the school, organize parent volunteers, plan and sponsor social/educational events, and help raise much needed funds to bridge the gap due to continual CPS budget cuts. FON supports the school’s mission to maintain and enhance the learning experience for all students of Northside College Prep High School.
Volunteering is an easy way to make a difference and is a great way to meet other engaged parents, administration, faculty and staff. We welcome & need parents to help out during your four short years at Northside and encourage you to attend our meetings and volunteer!
Friends of Northside is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation and all donations are tax deductible.
