Another kind of C.I.A.

Student leadership opportunities at Crane abound and the Crane International Student Alliance (C.I.A.)is a fantastic example of a grass-roots organization founded by students for students. Founded in 2014, Crane’s C.I.A. is open to students in all grades who are interested in learning about their own culture and the culture of others. The C.I.A. meets weekly to share, learn, and exchange ideas.

Recent activities include:

  • holding elections for leadership positions
  • making flags that represent student heritage and ethnicity
  • student presentations on their home country and countries they have visited
  • potluck of treasured family recipes
