The admissions practices of the past will not sustain the independent schools of the future.

Let’s move forward, together.

Meet Your New Partner

As an independent school enrollment leader, you know how hard it is to make a lasting impact when you lack the support, tools, and decision-making power you need to succeed. That’s why we’re here.

A nonprofit organization, The Enrollment Management Association provides professional support, advocacy, and smart, strategic enrollment tools to the enrollment offices of more than 1300 independent schools. We also administer the gold-standard SSAT to 80,000+ potential students each year.

No matter what kind of challenges or opportunities your school faces, our team will meet you where you are and help you move forward.

We help you Yield Your Best.
