Get to Know EMA

At The Enrollment Management Association, we believe that the admission practices of the past will not sustain the independent schools of the future. Every day, we serve enrollment leaders, increasing their success through the best science, research, and training. Because when great schools enroll great students, everything is possible.

A nonprofit organization, The Enrollment Management Association provides professional support and advocacy to the enrollment offices of more than 1,300 independent schools, and administers the gold-standard SSAT to 80,000-plus candidates who apply for admission each year.

Located in Skillman, New Jersey, less than five miles from downtown Princeton, The Enrollment Management Association offers a competitive benefits package and a friendly and innovative working environment. The Enrollment Management Association is an Equal Opportunity Employer.


The Enrollment Management Association offers our employees a Total Rewards package, which includes compensation and a range of market-relevant benefits. We believe in compensating well for excellent work. We balance our total rewards with pay and provide great benefits.
