Junior Crosby Scholars Academy
The deadline is approaching to register for Junior Crosby Academy — a requirement for all Crosby Scholars in their junior year of high school.
This year’s academies are scheduled for the first three Saturdays in September — Sept. 6, 13 and 20.
The academy includes workshops on preparing for the SAT and ACT and College 101. Parents are invited to participate in an optional session on financial aid and transitioning to college. Students should register online at www.crosbyscholarsrowan.org through their student portal.

Check-in is from 12:30 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. Students will not be allowed to enter after 1 p.m. Students must stay for the entire academy and submit an attendance sheet in order to receive credit for this program requirement. The event will conclude at 2:45 p.m.
No food will be provided at the event. Students should eat lunch before they arrive.
