The Road Ahead — Key Trends Impacting Enrollment in Independent Schools


There is a convergence of forces today that, taken together, are providing a perfect storm scenario for K-12 independent schools.


Changing demographics, increased school choice, changing consumer attitudes, a new generation of parents, and rising tuition are deeply affecting our markets and impacting enrollment goals. This presentation will explore these forces and outline actions a school can take today to face this changing landscape.


We will also have presentations and time to review:

  • key legal issues that may impact marketing and admissions,
  • AIMS schools who used the Standard Application Online (SAO) in the 2018-2019 admissions cycle
  • timely topics for discussion with your colleagues.                                                           


AIMS Members: $95 (through April 18th) or $105 (After April 18th)
NON AIMS Members: $115 (through April 18th) or $125 (After April 18th)


Please note that NO REFUNDS will be issued for cancellations for this class after April 22nd.
