Why Should I Attend the School Growth Bootcamp?
This bootcamp will transform the way you think about marketing your private Christian school. You will hear powerful stories from school leaders (just like you!) who have struggled to grow their school, then made changes using Schola's proven system.
You'll learn about the strategies that enabled school enrollment growth and financial stability.
You will be empowered with techniques to ignite your Word of Mouth marketing strategy using school story marketing to separate your school from your competitors and connect with Millennial parents.
We are structuring the School Growth Bootcamp so it's not just us teaching you how to market your school with the latest tips and tricks, but more importantly, to change your thinking about what school marketing should be about in 2020 and beyond.
If you can change your beliefs about how to market your school, then we can help you by giving you practical ways to get amazing enrollment results.
You do not want to miss this. We have limited seats available so that we can create a close-knit environment for attendees to maximize value and benefit from the School Growth Bootcamp.
Do I need to be a member of the Association of Classical & Christian Schools to attend?
This event is planned for the day prior to the Repairing the Ruins Conference at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. However, you do not need to be associated in any way to the ACCS. We welcome all private and Christian school leaders.
Who will be speaking?
The School Growth Bootcamp will feature Ralph Cochran and Schola's leadership team. You'll also learn from several successful Schola clients and a few VIP guest speakers, including Dr. Steve Turley, Don Carmichael, and Kelly Blake.
Will I have time to network with other school marketers?
Absolutely! Not only will you benefit from Schola’s team but you'll also interact with other school administrators, marketers, and admissions directors from around the country. We all can collaborate and learn from one another.
