  • College Fair

    College Fair/College Visit Requirement:

    To fulfill the college fair/college visit requirement, Crosby Scholars must speak with four college admission reps about their respective schools. Students typically fulfill this requirement by attending one college fair and submitting a college fair form during their sophomore year, junior year, or senior year; however, juniors and seniors may fulfill this requirement by visiting four college campuses. Details will be posted with changes and updates to this requirement as we learn more about changes to the fall semester. The full details of this requirement are always outlined in the Crosby Scholars Student Portal. This requirement must be fulfilled by early October of your senior year. Submitting one college fair form or one college visit form is required to verify your presence.

    The most popular way to fulfill this requirement is to attend the local college fair, however the College Fair may look different this year. We will update you via email and in your student portal as we receive more details.

  • CrosbyPlus : Advisor Program

    CrosbyPlus

    Previously known as the Grade Advisor Program.

    The purpose of the CrosbyPlus program is to discuss topics to help prepare scholars for the college admission process and build a foundation of knowledge that launches them into junior and senior years. We restructured the platform to improve the accessibility to our workshops for all students at all high schools. We listened to student feedback and determined the most effective way to reach all students and accommodate for busy high school schedules, is to record short YouTube videos and answer questions during a live launch. Throughout the spring semester we will begin posting these videos on our Crosby TV channel (YouTube page).

    During each presentation, we will record student participation and attendance. Throughout the spring semester we will reward CrosbyPlus participants with fun Crosby swag. All students who watch the live video launch or recording, will have the opportunity to win cool prizes. 

    We will launch CrosbyPlus for the 21-22 school year in the spring. The videos that will be posted soon on our Crosby TV channel are for all 9th and 10th grade scholars at every high school. Be sure to join us during the live launches to ask questions in real-time!
