Donations Needed for Casino Aspire Prize Baskets

Would you help us raise money for Iredell Crosby Last Dollar Grants and Scholarships by donating an item or items for prize baskets? The list of needed items and how to donate is at Anything you are able to contribute is much appreciated. For our 2018 graduates, we were able to provide almost $20,000 to help with college expenses. Our goal is to continue to support those students and raise money for the 180+ students in our 2019 graduating class, too!

Fall Academies

Below is a list of our scheduled fall academies. To register, use the Student/Parent Log-in on the homepage of our website. Once in the portal, you are able to choose the session you'd like to attend. Don't wait until the last minute--space is limited and some sessions may fill up.

Reminder- Scholars in grades 6-11 must attend ONE academy each school year as a requirement to remain active in the program.
