Grade Advisor Program
Realizing that college preparation must begin early, Program staff assigns all high school scholars in grades 9th and 10th to a volunteer Crosby Scholars Grade Advisor.
The Grade Advisor Program was established to offer underclassman Crosby Scholars the opportunity to meet with a volunteer advisor during the spring semester of each school year.
Assignments are based on the scholar's grade and high school, and scholars are notified by email when their Grade Advisor assignment has been confirmed.
Grade Advisor meetings are monthly group meetings and therefore are not rescheduled unless school is closed or after school activities are cancelled by the school.Topics discussed prepare scholars for the college admission process and build a foundation of knowledge that launches them into junior and senior years. Handouts will be posted in the Crosby Scholars Student Portal; paper copies will not be distributed during the meetings.
Meetings begin in January with a kick-off pizza party. The program concludes 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 CGW, Carver, Early College, Kennedy, Paisley, QEA, and WSPA, where meetings occur during the school day) and last approximately 30 to 40 minutes. Attendance is taken at each meeting and is recorded in the Crosby Scholars office. Meeting dates are posted on the Crosby bulletin board at every high school and included in the announcements, and emailed to scholars.
