The application for the 2020-2021 school year will open on August 1, 2020 for students in grades 6-10.
No calisthenics or saluting; we promise. Bring your college admission or scholarship essay(s) and meet with Crosby staff and volunteers experienced in critiquing students’ writing. Essays will be reviewed primarily for content with respect to following the prompt and being clear on what students are trying to share about themselves. Those students whose essays reveal significant deficiencies in grammar, punctuation, and spelling will be advised to consult an English teacher for assistance in cleaning up those aspects of their writing.

A brief primer on Crosby Scholars Senior Academies: Academies are held annually over a 6-month period (July to December); students must attend two and are free to choose those that best suit their needs and interests; the most up-to-date information on the academies is found in the student portal; while they are a program requirement, academies are best viewed as opportunities to gain knowledge and skills that guide students through senior year and into post-secondary education.
