Crosby Club Program (formerly known as Grade Advisor Program) helps underclassmen begin preparing for their post-secondary goals
- Topics discussed at Crosby Club meetings help prepare scholars personally, financially, and academically for post-secondary success.
- The Crosby Club Program was established to offer underclassmen the opportunity to meet with an advisor during the Spring semester of each school year.
- These meetings are group meetings and therefore are not rescheduled unless school is closed or after-school activities are canceled.
- Meetings are held monthly beginning in January. The program concludes in May with an end-of-year reception. Scholars are required to register online to attend meetings #1 and #5 only (snacks are provided).
- Online registration is not required to attend meetings #2, #3, and #4.
- Meetings are held most often during smart lunch or after school, at school, and last approximately 30-40 minutes. This is at the discretion of the high school.
- Attendance is taken at each meeting and is recorded in our office
- We strongly encourage students to attend as many meetings as possible!
