With Chad Tew

In many areas of the country, private school admission is increasingly looking like a game of musical chairs played in reverse. Each new academic year we find there are fewer children to fill the existing number of student desks. Missing such a shift in your market can wreak havoc on budgets, admission projections, and overall enrollment plans.

This webinar will examine sometimes startling demographic trends and how Admission Directors can help lead a process to promote enrollment stability in dynamic markets.

The presentation will include a case study examining how an Admission Director partnered with the CFO at a K-12 independent school to mine data and construct a detailed, multilayered vision of the school’s competitive environment to better understand the differing value-proposition elements at various entry grades.

You will see how this information helped inform the Head and Trustees in developing a competitive-pricing model and use primary demographic research to arrive at outreach, enrollment-strategy, and tuition-pricing decisions.
