What is the Enrollment Hourglass?

The Enrollment Hourglass is our way of visualizing and simplifying the path families take as they engage with your school. 

The six parts of this framework are: Discover, Engage, Connect, Enroll, Remain, and Refer.

By intentionally and strategically optimizing each phase of the hourglass, your school will attract more right-fit families, enroll more leads, improve parent satisfaction, elevate retention, and empower word-of-mouth ambassadors.
