Crosby Scholars Program
Northwest Middle School is a part of the Crosby Scholars Community Partnership, helping students in middle and high schools in Forsyth County prepare academically, personally, and financially for college admission and other post-secondary opportunities best suited to a student's needs, aptitudes and dreams.
With a 20-year history of providing academic training, financial aid and college application workshops, advisory services, college tours and Last Dollar Grant scholarships, Crosby Scholars now serves over 7,000 students per year.
Each Crosby Scholar must complete at least 2 hours of community service each school year. (Two hours are required, although five hours are recommended for high school students.) This service should be done at non-profit organizations or programs. This volunteer work can be fulfilled through church activities, scouts, school clubs or civic organizations.
Crosby Scholars who are in grades 6-8 must also attend a Saturday Academy. This forum is held in-person at Forsyth Tech, but a virtual option has also been added. This forum is a time where scholars learn more about study skills and time management.
High School Scholars have an on-campus advisor who meets with them monthly about preparing for the college application process.
For the 2021-2022 school year, Crosby Scholars is accepting applications from September 1st - October 31st for students in 6th through 10th grades enrolled in public middle and high schools in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools system.
