St. Paul’s Episcopal Day School Partners with Enrollment Catalyst
Several yeas ago I met Jill McGee at an all-day AISAP workshop in Minneapolis. Jill is the director of admissions at St. Paul’s Episcopal Day School in Kansas City, MO. I was speaking on how to Get S.M.A.R.T. in your school’s enrollment and marketing effort. Jill had flown in for the workshop after watching the Kansas City Royals in the World Series the night before.
After following me for a few years, the time was right for the team at St. Paul’s to begin a partnership with Enrollment Catalyst. I spoke to Jill McGee, Director of Admissions, and Andrew Myler, Head of School, on a conference call and they made the decision to schedule my site visit on August 22-23.
During my site visit, I conducted focus group meetings with new parents, current parents, faculty and board members. I also held meetings to discuss the current enrollment and marketing effort.
The school is in a position of strength with their outstanding track record and reputation of preparing students with a strong academic and character development program for high school. With nearly 450 students enrolled from toddlers to 8th graders, St. Paul’s is almost full throughout its grade levels. St. Paul’s Episcopal Day School develops confident learners, ethical leaders, and compassionate, engaged citizens.
Through my Enrollment Catalyst program, I will be able to help the team at St. Paul’s take their enrollment and marketing strategies to the next level. The goal is to implement a plan that utilizes best practices to create waiting lists throughout the school.
I will be working with the team during the next six months to provide ongoing coaching that will provide accountability, continued direction and help with implementation.
Please welcome St. Paul’s Episcopal Day School to the Enrollment Catalyst team!
