At The Enrollment Management Association, we believe that the admission practices of the past will not sustain the independent schools of the future.  Every day, we serve enrollment leaders, increasing their success through the best science, research, and training.  Because when great schools enroll great students, everything is possible.

A nonprofit organization, The Enrollment Management Association provides professional support and advocacy to the enrollment offices of more than 900 independent schools, and administers the gold-standard SSAT to 80,000-plus candidates who apply for admission each year.

Located in Skillman, New Jersey, less than five miles from downtown Princeton, The Enrollment Management Association offers a competitive benefits package and a friendly and innovative working environment. The Enrollment Management Association is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
