The school opened as a partnership between Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and California State University, Northridge. The school is currently being administered by the LAUSD.
Before the school opened, LAUSD referred to the school as Valley New High School #1. The school relieved overcrowding at Monroe, Cleveland High School, and Granada Hills Charter High School.
Northridge Academy does not have its own attendance boundary. Rather, it shares the attendance boundary of four neighboring high schools (Cleveland, Granada Hills Charter High School, Monroe High School, and John F. Kennedy High School).
Eighth graders who live in the attendance areas for these schools have the option of applying to attend Northridge Academy. Northridge Academy maintains a Block Schedule in which students go to 110-minute classes. Students also have a 30-minute Advisory (homeroom).
