A student meets with his or her Crew 3 times a week. Crew provides each student with a team of other students and a teacher adviser who help them be successful in high school. Students engage in a variety of activities that help them to form a strong connection with their fellow Crew members.

The Crew structure is the key vehicle for helping students develop their portfolios of academic work, prepare passage presentations, engage in college and career preparation activities, and to generally improve their success in the Venture High School community.
