Recruiting and retaining mission-appropriate students is critical to your school’s success. Therefore, an effective enrollment management program that attracts prospective families, encourages enrollment, and continues to educate about the school’s value to promote re-recruitment is a necessity.
Your school newsletter, whether electronic or print, is more than a series of reminders and notices. When crafted strategically, it is a shining example of your school’s mission at work.

It’s one of your strongest tools to influence recruitment and re-recruitment by showing the strength of your community, the value of programs offered, and the caliber of students and graduates produced.
