  • 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.

    6th Grade

    Crosby Scholars Academy provides an opportunity for students to participate in academic and personal enrichment workshops. We believe that learning how to set goals – short term and long term – is very important. Sixth grade students will be learning about setting “SMART” goals. Attending ONE of these academies will meet the 6th grade Crosby Scholars Academy requirement for the school year. There will be several workshops for parents to attend. (This is optional – parents are not required to attend 6th Grade Academy.) Registration for 6th Grade Academy is now closed. Students are encouraged to apply in the fall for the next Crosby Scholars Program year. 

    7th/8th Grade

    Crosby Scholars Academy provides an opportunity for students to participate in academic and personal enrichment workshops which may include: Building Self-Esteem, Communication Skills, Leadership: What does it take?, Time Management, Express Yourself, Decisions – your choices matter, Adult for a Day, and Hello High School (8th grade only). Attending ONE of these academies will meet the 7th/8th grade Crosby Scholars Academy requirement for the school year. Registration for 7th/8th Grade Academy is now closed. Students are encouraged to apply in the fall for the next Crosby Scholars Program year.
