"Noble Street College Prep has made a difference in my life by continuously providing me valuable resources throughout my academic career. Noble's willingness to offer support in any way possible is something that has changed me as a person.

"Noble has made me believe that it is possible for inner-city students to obtain an education that prepares them for a college career.  Without the support of Noble I would not have obtained the confidence and courage necessary to attend and study at Stanford University. 

Noble has impacted my family by giving my siblings and me a high quality high school education. In addition, my parents are eternally grateful for all the support and encouragement that Noble has given their children and the visible dedication of the teachers and administrators. My family owes so much to Noble."
