Back-to-school is our favorite time of year at RaiseMe. As freshmen begin to pile into campus for the first time, and returning students trickle their way back into classrooms and counseling offices, there’s a new energy and spirit on campuses that is hard to describe in any way other than *magical*.


We know that keeping college readiness top of mind for your students is extremely important to set them up for success for the remainder of the school year. That’s why we’ve put together some back-to-school resources that might be helpful for you to use as you’re gearing up your students to get back into the swing of things. You can learn more about these resources and download them for your students below by clicking on the links below.
