A student meets with his or her crew 3 times a week. Crew meetings provide each student with a team of other students and a teacher advisor who together help them be successful in high school. Students engage 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, prepare passage presentations, engage in college and career preparation activities, and to generally work out various issues of being a citizen in the Venture High School community.
