We proudly present The Character Skills Snapshot, an innovative tool designed to measure eight essential character skills for admission: resilience, open-mindedness, responsibility, teamwork, social awareness, self-control, intellectual curiosity, and initiative.
One of the greatest benefits of the certificate program is that participants have to rethink admission through the entire admission season, while working on relevant topics every week.
In June, we released member survey results which quantify the anticipated changes in international student enrollment in our schools based on new U.S. immigration policy. Given what the survey confirms, how should independent schools adjust to “the new normal”?
You cannot move forward if you don’t have the whole school involved in and supportive of your mission.
The admission department has a duty to the prospective student to determine whether he or she will be best served in our school. Ultimately, a mission-oriented admission model must answer “yes” to whether the mission will best serve the prospective student and whether he or she will embrace this offering and reciprocate.
