The goal of the ADI program is to equip new admission directors, who have prior admission experience, with leadership knowledge and skills to address enrollment challenges by increasing their competencies in financial, marketing, and assessment strategies that align with the school’s mission.

Framed within the broader context of the independent school landscape and competitive environment, the program is focused in the four skill areas identified by The Enrollment Management Association—marketing, leadership, finance, and assessment. Participants hear directly from content experts and participate in small team and affinity-based discussions. They have the opportunity to discuss what they have learned with group advisors and to reflect on how it can be applied in strategic enrollment planning at their schools.

Participants gather information about their school’s enrollment context prior to the program and build on these data during the sessions. An Enrollment Management Planning Guide is provided for this purpose.

Each competency area is addressed in a combination of expert instruction time, group discussion time, and individual reflection and planning time. Seasoned admission directors lead discussions and mentor participants throughout the program. A facilitator from the Center for Creative Leadership guides participants through an exploration of their own change leadership style.
