    Posted by The RTC Family on 11/20/2019

    Uplift Education prepares scholars for numerous exams, including the ACT. Scholars can expect to take the ACT the spring semester of their junior year in high school and may have the opportunity to retake it as a chance to earn a higher score during the fall semester of their senior year in high school.

    A scholar's ACT scores has the potential of earning them up to $40,000 a year. That could be $160,000! The amount of scholarships awarded for ACT scores is determined by each college. When scholars are preparing for the ACT, it's important to know their scores can also lead to free money in addition to college admission.

    Even is a scholar is unsure about attending a school in which would require a satisfactory ACT score, taking the ACT may unlock opportunities for free money. Scholarships may be as low as $500 to as high as $40,000--depending on the ACT score and college. Nonetheless, it's free money. Parents may read more at Princeton Review and Prep Scholar.

  • Thousands of Dollars in The Trash

    Posted by The RTC Family on 10/23/2019

    There are thousands of dollars waiting for scholars every year. A major key to unlocking free money for a scholar's college education is by completing the FAFSA each year. This form is used by colleges and universities to determine how much free money to award scholars based on the family's financial need.

    In 2018, 2.6 billion dollars of free money went unused because graduates from the class of 2018 did not complete a FAFSA form. Even if your scholar is not a senior, it's important for all families to know how completing the FAFSA unlocks thousands of dollars for scholars to claim for their college education.
