The Crosby Scholars Program is a unique college access program for students in grades 6-12 enrolled in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School system. The Program prepares students academically, financially, and personally for successful college enrollment. Students participate in Crosby Scholars Academy - a series of academic and personal enrichment workshops that may include test taking and study skills, time management, conflict resolution and a host of courses to help students prepare for college admission. Students perform community service, agree to remain drug free and to obey all school rules and regulations. Crosby Scholars receive advisory services, take part in career and college exploration activities, and participate in college admission and financial aid workshops. Students completing the program in grades 10, 11, and 12 are eligible to apply for "Last Dollar Grants" for college.
Program applications are available each year to students in grades 6-10. Students attending Forsyth County public schools in grades sixth through tenth are accepted into the Program upon application. Our vision is to ensure that every public school student in Forsyth County has the opportunity to experience the life-transforming possibilities of higher education.
