The work of admission—getting students through the door—is an important component of enrollment management but is just the beginning. As independent schools are increasingly challenged by the same external forces that have shaped the adoption of strategic enrollment management structures, processes, and policies in higher education, the national conversation on K-12 enrollment management has taken center stage.
This year’s findings paint a stubbornly unchanging picture about the value of admission inside of a typical independent school ecosystem.
A woman’s fight to get ahead. Her internal struggle of career versus family. Pay inequities. The challenge of finding support networks both inside and outside of work. A workshop delivered on these topics by four women in admission at SSATB’s 2015 Annual Meeting inspired us to take a closer look.
Application deadlines. Financial aid deadlines. Notification deadlines. Deadlines for international students versus U.S.; domestic boarding students versus day students. And finally, the deadline for a family to confirm its decision to join your community.
Admission and International Schools SSATB reached out to ECIS, ISC Research Ltd., and seasoned international school admission professionals to help us disseminate a first-of-its-kind international schools admission survey.
