CROWN POINT — On Friday, September 9 at 1:00 pm, College For Every Student (CFES) presented Crown Point Central School with its seventh “School of Distinction” award during a school-wide kick-off celebration at Camp Dudley in Westport, NY. CFES honored Crown Point for its success in creating high levels of college and career readiness among its students.
"Crown Point has, over the course of it's partnership with CFES, fully embedded the core practices into the culture of the school, creating a culture that supports mentoring, leadership and college and career readiness,” said CFES Program Director Andrea McDonald.
“School of Distinction” recognition is a year-long endeavor. Schools are selected for their exemplary programs that incorporate the three CFES core practices: Leadership Through Service, Mentoring, and Pathways to College and Career. These schools provide intensive exposure to the practices for targeted students, known as CFES Scholars, and create an atmosphere that promotes college and career readiness for their entire student body.
“We've seen significant growth in the empowerment of students at Crown Point,” added McDonald. “In today’s day and age, it’s essential that students develop skills needed for success in and out of the classroom and their getting those skills through the CFES program.”
Crown Point is one of six Adirondack schools to receive this honor out of the 33 across the United States and in Ireland.
In addition to a its teacher-student mentoring program, students visited college campuses, engaged in leadership training and led and planned service projects for the school and community.
Crown Point Principal Tara Spaulding responded regarding this distinction, “CFES and CPCS have forged a partnership for our students to achieve and be more. CPCS has instilled in our students the three core CFES practices: Leadership Through Service, Mentoring and Pathways to College & Career. Because of these focuses our school culture has had many opportunities, and with those opportunities has come empowerment. Thank you to College For Every Student for your continued efforts. It is with honor that we receive the 7th School of Distinction Award!”
