Consultancy Service

The mission of the Association of Independent School Admission Professionals (AISAP) is to support and advance those involved in admission and enrollment management in their responsibilities for advancing institutional mission and financial sustainability.

Personalized Approach IMG_2913.jpg

Responsibilities of admission professionals have grown exponentially over time, and given that scope, admission professionals can benefit and grow from an objective assessment by their peers. As each school’s mission and vision is different than the next, AISAP recognizes the importance of this consultancy being as personal and adaptable to the individual and the school as possible. Therefore the process itself is personal and individual. The AISAP Admission Consultancy Service is tailored to a school’s particular circumstances and the strengths and individuality of the professionals who serve each school. We seek to strengthen the professional.

Partnering to Advance the Admission Process at Your School

The AISAP Consultancy Service provides peer-to-peer review and assessment of the enrollment management program at your school. The consultancy visit is led by two or three experienced Admission professionals. Over a one and one half day visit, the consultancy team will provide you and your school leaders with feedback about the efficiency of operations as well as ideas and recommendations about how to evolve your office and support the objectives of your enrollment management program. We’ll assess office operations, processes, campus visit program(s), communications strategy, and outreach. We’ll also provide you with additional resources should you elect to take a “deep dive” on issues like demographic analysis, net tuition revenue modeling, and brand development and marketing plans.

Schools may engage this service at any time. Independent evaluation is key to any organization's success and growth. However, natural fits are during times of expansion or consolidation (of your staff or the marketplace) or leadership transitions.
