How does Student Prospect List work? 

Candidates actively seeking independent school admission create an account with EMA—either through SSAT, Character Skills Snapshot, or Standard Application Online registration, or via direct Admission.org sign-up.

During account creation, parents consent to hear from SPL subscribers, providing details such as the type of school they are interested in, religious affiliation, and their student’s academic, art, athletic, and activity interests. 

School admission teams sign into their EMA account to access SPL and curate lists of students who best meet the school type and admission criteria using advanced filters. 

New candidates are added daily in real-time, and the date added filter makes it easy to track new students.
