  • Crosby Scholars Academy

    The Crosby Scholars Academy offers students academic and personal development workshops on a variety of skill enhancement topics that support student achievement and college planning.

    Parents please note by allowing your student(s) to attend the Crosby Scholars Academy, you are agreeing to the terms of the Parent Partnership Agreement located in your student’s Crosby Scholars Student Portal.  Should you not agree with these terms, you are required to contact the Executive Director at mwlovett@crosbyscholars.org before allowing your student to attend the Crosby Scholars Academy. Once your student attends Academy, the agreement is in effect until the student voluntarily withdraws from the program or does not fulfill a program requirement.

  • Community Service

    Click  2019-20 Community Service Form  to download a community service form for the 2019-20 school year!

    2019-20 Deadline: April 8th, 2020 

    Crosby Scholars are required to complete two hours of community service, although five are recommended. Scholars must submit a form documenting their hours that includes a signature of the person in charge of the service activity by the deadline noted above.

    Submitting your form is easy! Make a copy or take a picture of the form for your records before you submit it. 

    1. Upload your form to your Crosby Scholars Student Portal on the My Documents page, which is the dropdown of the My Crosby page. You will see a field for the 2019-20 community service form.
    2. Take a picture of your form and email it to middleschool@crosbyscholars.org
    3. Mail it to Crosby Scholars Program, 2701 University Parkway, W-S, NC 27105
    4. Fax it to 336.725.1321
    5. Drop it off at the Crosby Scholars office
    6. Submit it at your school's Student Services office

    Scholars who completed the Crosby Scholars Program during the previous school year may count hours volunteered after the previous year's deadline, including summer volunteer hours, toward the following school year's requirement.

    Community service must be performed with a non-profit agency or be an activity that benefits a non-profit agency. The volunteer commitment can be fulfilled through scouts, school clubs, civic organizations, and/or certain church activities. While membership in a club or organization does not count as service, volunteering in the community in a club-sponsored activity does. For example, being a member of a youth choir doesn't count, but singing at a nursing home with the choir qualifies as service hours. If you have questions about whether your community service idea meets the requirement for the Program, please contact Crosby Scholars at 336.725.5371. Crosby Scholars Program staff reserves the right to determine if a community service activity fulfills our requirement.
