Grade Advisor Program
The Crosby Scholars Grade Advisor Program was established in order for 9th and 10th grade Crosby Scholars to meet with an advisor during the spring semester of each school year. Scholars are notified via their Crosby Scholars Student Portal when their Grade Advisor, an important first mentor in the college journey, is assigned. Topics discussed during Grade Advisor meetings prepare scholars for the college admission process and build a foundation of knowledge that launches them into junior and senior years. Materials used by advisors will be posted in the Crosby Scholars Student Portal; paper copies will not be distributed at the meetings.
Grade Advisor meetings are not rescheduled unless school is closed or after-school activities are cancelled by the school. They begin in January with a kick-off pizza party and conclude with an end-of-year reception in May. Scholars are required to register through their Crosby Scholars Student Portal to attend meetings #1 (pizza party) and #5 (end-of-year reception) only. Online registration is not required to attend meetings #2, #3, and #4.
Meetings are held on campus after school (except at CGW, Carver, Early College, Kennedy, Paisley, QEA, and WSPA, where meetings occur during the school day) and last approximately 30 to 40 minutes. Meeting dates are posted on the Crosby bulletin board, announced at the high schools, and emailed to scholars.
Attendance is taken at each meeting and is recorded in the Crosby Scholars office. Students who miss a meeting should sign on to the webinar at the end of each month to review the material that was covered.
