Rising 8th Grade College Tours
All rising 8th grade Crosby Scholars are encouraged to participate in any free college tours arranged by the Crosby Scholars Program. College tours are a great opportunity to start early on exploring colleges and catching a glimpse of your college future.
College tours for rising 8th graders are held during the summer after the 7th grade year. Scholars will have the opportunity to visit various nearby colleges. Early college visits provide Scholars with the chance to meet with college students and college staff, while also receiving information on college admissions processes, academics, and college life.
Here is a list of websites with information about what middle school Crosby Scholars (and their parents) can be doing to prepare academically and financially for college.
