It's important to sign up for the right kind of Educator account so you have the right resources and access.
I'm a teacher, counselor, or administrator at a high school
During sign-up, select that you work at a High School, and then select the appropriate title after typing in your school. If you can't find your school, try these tips. Then you're ready to get started!
I work at a college access organization
During sign-up, select that you work at "Other", which prompts you to type in your organization. If you can't find your org, try these tips for finding a high school - the organization search works the same way, so many of those suggestions will help. Then you're ready to get started!
I'm an independent counselor, consultant, or tutor
During sign-up, select that you are a Mentor, which prompts you to type in your organization. For your organization, please type "Independent Consultant." Then you're ready to get started!
I work at a community college in advising, student success, faculty, or administration. How can I use RaiseMe?
RaiseMe is excited to partner with community college educators advisors, counselors, and leadership. For now, you can encourage your students to use RaiseMe to help them on their path toward successful transfer. We’re also exploring other ways that RaiseMe can help community college staff achieve their goals, and we’d love to hear from you.
I'm a homeschool teacher
When signing up, it asks for your high school, you can enter in "Home School" and you will see the homeschool option pop up. If you can't find it, try typing "1 Your Street."
If you work with a large homeschool group, it may already be listed as a school, so sign up as a teacher/counselor at a high school and then either select yours or request that we add your large homeschool. However, if you work with only a handful of students, or you're going to be working with your child/children, we recommend that you work directly with them to see their RaiseMe profile and help them earn micro-scholarships.
Educator accounts are meant for teachers, counselors or mentors who plan to: 1. invite many students to use RaiseMe and 2. Connect with those students so they can monitor and motivate them to earn micro-scholarships. If you sign up for a Home School account, you must connect with each student individually.
I work at a four-year college or university
Educator accounts are reserved for staff within high schools and designed to meet their specific needs. If you’re interested in using RaiseMe at your institution, our partnerships team works directly with college enrollment staff to build programs that reach potential applicants. To discuss partnerships, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I work at the district level
I'm a parent
Educator accounts are meant for teachers, counselors or mentors who plan to 1. invite many students to use RaiseMe and 2. Connect with those students so they can monitor and motivate them to earn micro-scholarships.
Not only do most parents not need to do either of those things, but we also require Educators to provide proof that they work with students before they can be verified. Therefore it's not advised for a parent to sign up for an Educator account. Rather, if you're going to be working with your child/children, work directly with them to see their RaiseMe Portfolio and help them earn micro-scholarships - and check out our Parent FAQ.
