Cap-Ed has for a number of years lent educational support to the Crosby Scholars Program in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School System in conjunction with their career and college exploration activities. We highly recommend this program to you. Please follow the link below for additional information.
The Crosby Scholars Program is a unique college access program for students in grades 6-12 enrolled in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School system. The Program prepares students academically, financially, and personally for successful college enrollment. Students participate in Crosby Scholars Academy – a series of academic and personal enrichment workshops that may include test taking and study skills, time management, conflict resolution and a host of courses to help students prepare for college admission. Students perform community service, agree to remain drug free and to obey all school rules and regulations. Crosby Scholars receive advisory services, take part in career and college exploration activities, and participate in college admission and financial aid workshops. Students completing the program in grades 10, 11, and 12 are eligible to apply for “Last Dollar Grants” for college.
Part of Cap-Ed’s mission is to help students improve their lives through better education. As a corollary we want to make better education available to more students. Project Potential is focused on this very objective in the Lexington Schools assisting students who might not otherwise go to college to be able to do so. Cap-Ed has provided these students with tutoring and test prep to enable them to obtain prerequisite ACT/SAT test scores to enter college. We are very proud of our small role in their success. Please see their link below.
At Project Potential, we believe that education changes lives. We also believe that a college education is crucial to breaking the cycle of economic disadvantage so many of our students grow up in.
Project Potential was founded in 1994 by local businessman Tim Timberlake and former superintendent Jim Simeon. Their purpose for starting this program was to encourage more students in our community to enroll in a college or university after graduating from high school. As a result of their vision and commitment, Project Potential raised the funds needed to offer partial scholarships to 13 students in 1996.
Trio Talent Search is another college access program working with economically disadvantaged first generation students in the Thomasville and Lexington School System with the goal of helping these students succeed in school and college. Again Cap-Ed heartedly supports this program through test prep initiatives. We share the Trio Talent Search Program link with you below. Please check them out. All these programs are worthy of your financial consideration and support.
