Here is a site that could help you and your children prepare for college. This site is still fairly new and already assisted kids find colleges to attend.
Brief summary of this site: It was designed with young adults who would like to attend college but can't seem to get the assistance they need. This site allows them to input their achievements (big or small) into a database, and the company does the research for them. All interested parties will then in-turn review the records and contact the individual. Helps illeviate alot of the stresses of finding higher education to fit your needs.
Great for the parents also. They provide the resources to help you find the information you need also to assist your child in "financing" their education.
Hope it helps.
