Concurrent Session 2: The Ride to Independent Schools 2020-2021 Special Report12:40 PM - 1:40 PM

Slides from Presentation

The process for families of choosing an independent school is a journey. It involves much consideration, a great deal of investigation, and ultimately critical decision-making. This session will share insights from The Enrollment Management Association’s special report The Ride to Independent Schools 2020-2021 featuring insights, data, and recommendations based on a survey of nearly 3,000 families during the summer of 2020. The more that schools can appreciate and understand what parents are thinking and how they are feeling at each stage of that ride, the better they will be at meeting parents’ needs and concerns. Empowered by the insights of parents, schools can create a process that is meaningful and satisfying, which in turn will help with schools’ enrollment.
