Marketing a Private School

Private, independent, and Christian schools that fail to think strategically about their marketing strategy often find themselves struggling with a range of issues, such as shrinking operating budgets, image confusion and sporadic enrollment results. Enrollment Catalyst helps schools be intentional about growing their enrollment through focused consulting and coaching that is tied to proven marketing systems, strategies and solutions.

Oakbrook Prep’s “Be Our Guest” Marketing Video — An Interview with Amanda Ledbetter

AmandaLedbetterA few weeks ago while speaking at the AISAP Roundtable in Savannah, I had the opportunity to meet Amanda Ledbetter. Amanda is the Admissions Director at Oakbrook Preparatory School in Spartanburg, SC.
