Students and Families interested in attending this event - CLICK HERE for program details

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 Expose are:

  • 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.

Trends in Affordability:  Impact, Perception, and Value

When it comes to enrollment, it’s hard to ignore the impact and perceptions of affordability.  Take a look at national trends in a few key areas of school affordability and financial aid and see how the San Diego area compares.  Examine and discuss the implications of these realities on your ability, strategies, and goals for creating and supporting socioeconomically diverse communities on campus.  We’ll also explore trends in the latest generation of new independent school parents:  the Millennials.  Explore the characteristics that Millennials exhibit and how they might influence their perception of affordability, to shape your financial aid policy and communication approaches.
