65 Years of Enrollment Leadership

Since 1957, The Enrollment Management Association (EMA) has provided unparalleled leadership and service to private schools and prospective families. A non-profit, EMA supports over 1,300 schools and more than 80,000 families annually with industry-leading enrollment services.

We’ve brought PROSPECT to higher education to continually champion transformational education journeys. By providing colleges and universities with the tools to connect with the right-fit students beginning with rising ninth-graders, we sincerely hope our students will gain a better understanding of the opportunities awaiting them. This insight will help students chart their high school experience and empower them to make life-altering college decisions.
