The Crotona Center helps boys develop into men of good character through study, sports and mentoring. Our staff, by their example and instruction, inspire youth to recognize the value of sound character and educational achievement. We prepare them for the next level of school and help them become responsible family members and good citizens. Crotona's programs are inspired by the social teachings of the Catholic Church and the spirit of Opus Dei. We are open to students, volunteers, and staff regardless of race, creed or nationality.

CROTONA ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM (CAP)

 

CAP, Crotona's school-year program, helps students improve academically and grow in character through personal attention from college and young professional volunteers. Mentors help students identify and practice the personal habits and study skills needed to achieve their goals. Students are asked to bring all school assignments, tests, and projects pertaining to the subjects in which they need to improve on and must present their report cards following each grading period in school.
