Why We Do It

Mastering Enrollment Marketing

After spending many years in our roles at independent schools, it became clear that there was a need to enhance an antiquated enrollment system built for the parents of our alumni. Our travels around the globe with fellow admissions colleagues proved this point and gave light to a simple and yet often overlooked fact, we are all in this together. 

To that end, we have made it our mission to advance as many independent schools enrollment efforts as possible so they can meet the digital parents of today wherever they may be online and help navigate the rapidly changing digital landscape.
