"RaiseMe Community" helps every student build a path to college. They have created a tool called "RaiseMe for High School Parents."
For detailed information, visit https://www.raise.me/#auth=signup&country=US
This is an all-new site (no fees) to help parents and guardians guide their students through the discovery of college and the micro-scholarship process.
After registering with RaiseMe, parents and guardians can add achievements to their students' portfolios to help support, encourage and motivate them in their pursuit to earn micro-scholarships from colleges. Whenever students receive a report card, do well on a standardized test, earn a new honor or award, or complete new extracurriculars and/or commuity service projects, parents or guardians can help their students develop their RaiseMe portfolio and keep it up-to-date by inputting their students' latest accomplishments in order to rack up additional micro-scholarships from colleges they are following.
Good Luck! Many colleges and universities have partnered with RaiseMe to help recruit potential students and to lower the expense of college for these students.
