SENIOR ACADEMY

Crosby Scholar seniors are required to attend two Crosby Senior Academies (CSA) offered throughout the school year. A different topic is discussed at each Crosby Senior Academy. Online registration is required through the Crosby Scholars student portal. Within a few days following an academy, a senior can check his/her Crosby Senior Academy status through his/her Crosby Scholars student portal. 

  • Plan wisely -- The Program does NOT offer a make-up academy as seniors only are required to attend 2 of the academies.
  • To receive credit for attending an academy, a scholar must: arrive on time, sign in, stay for the entire academy, and submit a confirmation of attendance at the end. Scholars who skip any of the steps to this process DO NOT receive acdemy credit. 
  • Seniors who have a question on the day of the academy outside of office hours, may call the office cell phone at 336.782.7859
  • Registered seniors who do not attend the academy and do not cancel their registration prior to the academy will jeopardize their status in the Program.
