Strategic Admission & Enrollment Management
This presentation will teach you how to establish a current admission and enrollment management baseline from which you can begin to plan strategically for the future. We’ll review Independent School Management’s “Admission and Enrollment Management Assessment” instrument—whose questions themselves can guide you to best practices—as well as a framework for measuring and reporting progress to the head of school, the board, and the school community. You’ll leave having created a personal 3-step plan to help you drive enrollment demand beyond your needs.

A Framework for Analyzing Your School’s Enrollment Story
Explore a framework for analyzing your school’s enrollment outcomes by considering some essential questions: How are you positioned in the marketplace? How well are you articulating who you are as a school? What does it mean to be an influencer in your immediate market? Does your faculty have an accurate impression of the student experience? Is everyone serving the same mission narrative? Do parents believe what they pay in tuition is worth it? Bring at least 3 years of your school’s enrollment data for guided analysis of what they’re really telling you; you’ll create a plan to take home and establish essential neworking connections for ongoing coaching and strategy work.
