Last fall the Crosby Scholars Community Partnership launched AAMPED, a new initiative to address the number of black males falling behind in local schools.  This year the program is making sure Young men in the community are staying sharp during summer break with its first Math I Camp. 

During the two-day camp held last week, 20 Young men from various schools across the district came together to sharpen their math skills. Retired principal and AAMPED coordinator Richard Watts said the purpose of the program is to break down math blocks prior to the start of the school year.

The Crosby Scholars Community Partnership is designed to help students prepare academically, financially, and personally for college enrollment. Through several programs and workshops held throughout the year, Crosby empowers students to explore the many possibilities education can offer.
