High School

Welcome to the Crosby Scholars High School Program.

Preparing for college starts now! Decisions you make, classes you take, and grades you earn do matter. As a Crosby Scholar, you have made the decision to prepare for college enrollment. We want to help you achieve this goal. Involve your family as your support system, and get to know your high school counselor.

  • Students in 9th and 10th grade interested in enrolling must submit an application during our open enrollment period at the beginning of the school year (see homepage of website).
  • Scholars who completed the Program in 8th grade are automatically enrolled in the Program freshman year but will need to update their portal by deleting their middle school and adding their new high school.
