Sneak Peek – New Curriculum for High School and District Partners

The new school year is officially underway across the nation and we’ve got some exciting product features and resources in the works to support your student’s college and career aspirations. For highly engaged high schools that are ready to further embed RaiseMe into their college-going culture, we’ll be offering a suite of services to take your school’s experience to the next level. As an official high school partner, educators will have access to a free college and career readiness curriculum, differentiated by grade level, offering monthly insights and touchpoints to help students track their progress on RaiseMe and tie those learnings back to their academic and extracurricular goals.
