Summer Senior Academies

>>>>>Register NOW!!<<<<<

Fulfill Your Senior Requirements Early!

Hello, rising seniors (& parents)! Summer is here! We hope you have some fun things planned. We also want to encourage you to take time over the summer to work on your Crosby Scholars senior requirements. Make the most of your free time, before senior year starts! For example, you could complete 2 community service hours and submit your form, visit some college campuses, and even attend Senior Academy workshops.

Remember, each senior needs to attend 2 senior academies, so check out the first two academies we are offering over the summer to help you get a kick-start on this requirement. Space is limited, so, act fast! For the two academies listed, if you wish to attend, you will need to RSVP by clicking the button below! The rest of your academies will be listed in your student portal (where you will register for them) in mid - July.

Senior Academy 1

Creating a Target List of Colleges

Monday, July 9th, 2pm

RCCC; Jake Alexander Boulevard South, Salisbury, NC, United States

We will meet at RCCC Building 600, room 111. Space is limited to 30 students. Creating a target list of schools begins with self-knowledge. If you don't know who you are and what you are seeking, it can be difficult to know which colleges best meet your needs and preferences. Next, we consider using a "cluster" approach to identifying 3-5 colleges that are a good fit academically, socially, and financially. Finally, we will explore college search tools as a means of broadening (or narrowing!) the list of prospective schools.

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

Getting In

Friday, July 13th, 2pm

Rowan Public Library Headquarters; West Fisher Street, Salisbury, NC, United States

This academy is held at the Rowan Public Library. Completing college applications can become monotonous and sometimes daunting, especially if you don't know what Admissions Counselors are looking for in an applicant. At this Academy, we will engage in activities designed to help you better understand the Admissions process from both sides of the desk and help prepare you to be the most competitive applicant you can be.
