North Pointe's Community Outreach Program, Prep Cares, provides students, faculty, alumni and parents
the opportunity to shape the future, share with the less fortunate and support those with health challenges.
Throughout the school year, the Prep mentors elementary students through workshop presentations,
athletic and art clinics and 4A Days (special all day events focused on academics, athletics, arts and
activities). During the holidays, the Prep provides assistance to the hurting and less fortunate donating
thousands of dollars in food, toys and supplies. The highlight of the Prep's year long activities to support
those with health challenges is the annual Care-A-Thon where students raise money for various charities.
The school year kicks off with the High School and Jr. High Back to School Bashes at the Foothills
Recreation and Aquatics Center. Both Bashes feature the facilities' diving pool, lazy river, rock wall and
game room. The High School Bash moves inside for a dance. Throughout the school year, the Prep hosts
several Jr. High Dances including Homecoming Week's Disco Night and Spring Fling's Beach Party. High
Schoolers enjoy the traditional Homecoming Dance as well as Spring Fling's Freshmen/Sophomore Beach
Party and Junior/Senior Prom.

There are some in our society who believe school should be an
intense place of only academic learning. At North Pointe, we agree
with the intensity part, but we do not limit the learning to just
academics. We believe a student is only fully prepared for college
