Leadership Summit Description:

Demographics, marketing, competition, financial aid, sustainability. Never before have Independent Schools faced such daunting challenges. Schools need a multi-dimensional plan to climb out of the “weeds” and into a bright and plentiful future.

This 2 1/2 day workshop is uniquely qualified to help your school create its own pathway to success. The program is team-based for groups of 3-5 trustees, admissions officers, HOS and CFO’s. You will work together to understand the landscape, determine what’s blocking your path, and lay new groundwork for your enrollment plan. 

It should not be a deterrent if you cannot bring the entire group, but you will be faced with much more success by having others from your institution taking part in the exercises throughout the conference.

Hard to get a team together? No problem, AISAP's program placing allows for single attendees as well.

“This was a great opportunity to really look at our school brand. The best part was that I can apply what we learned. I would love to have our board and head of school hear this presentation.”

“Provocative, informative and organized. Provided the groundwork and structure for having the kinds of disunions we had and have with our board, admin team and faculty to deal with the long term sustainability of our school. Never have two days been better spent for the health and viability of our school.”

“Our team is stronger, our vision clearer.  Great networking opportunities, terrific AISAP staff and insightful speakers. Thanks AISAP!”

“This summit is the ultimate office retreat. Spending time together as a team is always helpful, but with the expert guidance and clear agenda, it made everything 100 times more effective and truly an invaluable experience.”

“This workshop provided the tools, templates, and strategies to develop a strategic enrollment plan, but most importantly it provided our team the time to think, plan, and begin the process.

Kaleidoscope. The opportunity to collaborate and listen to important information through different lenses has provided the nexus for true strategic enrollment management."

This workshop has given me so many tools/thoughts/ideas to take back to my school. I cant tell you how pleased I am that I attended, thank you. It was fantastic and I learned so much."

“Great meeting, very useful, can't wait to use some of the spreadsheets and ideas.”

“This workshop was a fabulous working event for our admission/marketing and communications team. It was affirming, inspirational, and gave us many ideas and documents to takeaway for collaborative, organizational purposes. We can really take action steps from this workshop. Love this format.”

“This was a fantastic experience for my team plus me. The opportunity to pause and think throughout the event was so beneficial. I would highly recommend this to others."
