Our top priority is helping our schools achieve their goals and shape the future of education. Today we support and stand with our community of over 1,300 independent schools all across the globe that empowers students to navigate their unique paths to success.

Now, a rapidly changing world demands constant innovation in education. To align with the evolving needs of admission professionals, we are excited to unveil EMA’s new brand identity. While our mission remains the same, our new vision—to champion transformational education journeys—is what we want to achieve for those we serve. At its core, providing students with a transformational education journey and helping them thrive throughout each stage of that journey is what it’s all about for schools, families, and EMA.

EMA was founded in 1957 as the Secondary School Admission Test Board (SSATB). Changing our name in 2016 was the catalyst of our brand evolution. As the Enrollment Management Association, our name rightfully emphasizes the importance of sustainable enrollment strategies. Today we are the leading resource dedicated to helping independent school leaders with their enrollment needs.

Most know us for pioneering the gold-standard SSAT—administered to 50,000 potential students each year. We have since evolved beyond traditional testing services, offering timely data, insights, and digital solutions to help sustain the independent schools of the future. We’ve grown from admissions professionals to a vast network of experts and advocates—developing the industry-standard Character Skills Snapshot, leadership tools like Learning Pass, and first-rate recruitment resources, like the Standard Application Online and Student Prospect List.

A rapidly changing world demands constant innovation in education. Helping our schools achieve their goals and shape the future of education is our top priority.
