South Shore Educational Expo at Derby Academy

South Shore Secondary School Educational Expo 
Hosted by Derby Academy in Hingham, MA
September 25, 

On the road to recruiting your next class of students various operational strategies are implemented. School Fairs, or as we here at AISAP call them, Educational Expos, are just one of the traditional methods used by professionals around the globe to expose families to the choices available to them on the road to higher education. As our mission and role is to Elevate, Educate, and Empower you, the professional, we see Educational Expos as a time when you can not just meet new students but as well get a bit of professional development for yourself. 

AISAP Educational Expos will provide several things:

  • An opportunity on a global scale to encourage schools to come together in support and as advocates of private education opportunities for parents and students.
  • An opportunity to have professional development provided by AISAP and partners for all of the attending Admission and Enrollment Management professionals.
  • An opportunity for students and parents to have premier access to break-out sessions with leading authorities and practitioners in areas related to the Admission and Enrollment Management process.  For example, there are sessions on assessment and its role in the admission process, Financial Aid, writing an essay that makes a difference, athletics and arts in the recruitment process, and the role of counselors, educational consultants, and advocacy groups.

AISAP’s Career Center seeks to help admission professionals along with their journeys and the AISAP Expos in year one highlight the professional journeys of several esteemed admission deans by hearing their stories (professional journeys) at Expos across the country.  

Career paths in independent schools provide many options for the aspiring educator or leader.  The session is designed to explore the possibilities and opportunities that independent schools can provide for the admissions professional at each stage of one’s career.  We will identify the goals, skills, experiences, and expertise that are valued when considering or designing a satisfying, meaningful career path whether in admissions or other leadership or administrative roles in independent education.  Participants should leave with a clear sense of the ways schools view preparation for various roles, inside and outside of admissions; what the possible – as well as preferred - career pathways look like and how best to prepare for the roles one desires to have next – or someday.
