The spring semester of the junior year is an important prep-time for all that is to come in the following months. Admissions offices are typically busy hosting events and interacting with students to help them decide where they will apply in the fall. Spring of the junior year is typically busy visiting college campuses, attending information sessions, and interacting with admission reps to help them prepare for their Senior Year applications!

 

In an effort to share current, correct information, we will use this space to direct you to resources that we trust to help you through this time. Remember, the Crosby Scholars Program staff is available to support you.

 

  • Crosby Scholars Think Like a Senior Presentation: We will continue to host the final junior year requirement virtually through WebEx. All webinar dates for the TLS presentation are posted in the Crosby Scholars Student Portal. Be sure to sign up now to complete this requirement early!
  • Senior Advisor Forms: Every senior in the Crosby Scholars program will work with a senior advisor throughout their final year in the program.  If a student would like an assigned advisor from our staff (more than 2/3 of the current senior class), NO FORM is required and students will automatically be assigned. If a student would like to work with a self-selected advisor, they must complete the senior advisor form in their Crosby Scholars Student Portal. Join us on March 30th at 4pm to learn more about the Senior Advisor Program during a virtual webinar. More details can be found in your Crosby Scholars Student Portal.
  • WSFCS Updates: As you should already know, your semester is still moving forward with online learning until at least May 15th. Please be sure to stay committed to your coursework, as your effort will impact your overall performance this semester. Check out the school system website to stay up to date on any WSFCS updates.
  • Campus Tours/College Visit Requirement: Most college campuses are closed this spring for campus visits, as an alternative, be sure to participate in virtual tours that many colleges offer.  Crosby Scholars understands that a virtual visit is nothing like a feet-on-the-ground campus tour, and we urge you to embrace the best option that colleges can offer at this time. We will accept campus tour/college visit forms for virtual visits this spring. At this time we will accept parent signatures for the form where a signature is required. If are submitting a college visit form for virtual campus tours, the information must be honestly presented and we have the right to revoke this credit if the submission is not accurate.
