2020 was…. not what any of us were expecting (to put it lightly). Schools had to adapt, and — yes — pivot to meet their goals. And with the future trajectory of both schools and families unclear, one issue has risen to the top of the priority list for 2021: retention. Establishing a strong retention strategy is one of the most important things you can focus on right now to ensure you meet enrollment goals and increase financial stability for your school in the year to come. 

With that, we’re thrilled to announce the release of our newest book: The Recipe for Retention: Cooking Up an Award-Winning Retention Strategy for Your Private School. In it, you’ll find what you need to whip up a five-star retention strategy at your school, or spice up your current approach.
