First-Ever EMA Head’s Institute a Rousing Success

One of the highlights of the year for EMA was getting the go-ahead from our Board, with the support of the Edward E. Ford Foundation, to launch our first-ever Head’s Institute. We never could have imagined that the week-long event would far exceed expectations, nevermind build a new community of school leader strategists for the wider independent school industry.

The Future of Financial Aid

Stronger by Association

As we head into this week’s EMA annual conference, I am reminded of several important issues which speak to our theme this year, “Stronger by Association.”

The Politics of Enrollment Management

Political savvy comes naturally for some people. For others, it’s a skill that needs to be learned. I belong to the latter. This year, I commited to mindfully incorporate these action items into my professional practice.

We Are Not An Island

We discussed which leadership approaches would have the greatest potential for success in our institutions. It clicked for me that “We are not an island” was the approach we most needed to focus on at my school.

Listening to Parents, Changing Perspectives

Because EMA is responsible for delivering nearly 90,000 SSATs and 45,000+ SAO applications annually to families, students, and our member schools, we have a unique vantage point in working with all parties to better understand changing dynamics.

Using the Enrollment Management Spectrum to Drive Success – Three Brutal Facts

I’ve seen that when all revenue-focused offices are working together strategically, there’s no better technique for long term enrollment success.
