SchoolAdmin

Admissions and enrollment management for K-12 schools

About SchoolAdmin

SchoolAdmin is a cloud-based school administration solution, which assists independent and private K-12 schools with managing admissions, enrollment, and tuition. Key features include prospect management, event scheduling, custom forms, fund disbursement, reminders, and customizable reporting.

SchoolAdmin comes with an admissions module, which enables administrators to schedule appointments, send communications via text/email, share checklists with staff and families, create events for prospective students, and manage applications. It displays various admissions statistics in real-time, including inquiry-to-application conversion, selectivity, and yield. Plus, teams can generate contracts to define fee structures, manage student-related documents from a centralized portal, and collect policy acknowledgements from parents via electronic signatures. Parents can also login to a dedicated portal to accept admission offers, receive reminders, and pay fees.

SchoolAdmin comes with an application programming interface (API), which facilitates integration with third-party applications such as Blackbaud, FACTS, SSAT, Diamond Mind, Authorize.Net, and more.

From the beginning of our time working with School Admin, we've had a great experience. From sales to implementation to actually using School Admin, we've only had friendly service with great response time (usually my changes are what hold things up). Initially we balked at the price because it was 4x what we paid with our previous OA/OE software company. However it has added some much value and allowed us to keep in touch and know exactly where families are in the process, it has been a great investment so far! We could not recommend School Admin enough!

Pros

How it integrates all parts of the interest/application/enrollment process into one easy to use, fully customizable system.
Great updates and customer service

Cons

Cost-worth the value but your have to make an investment

School Admin is a top-notch customer-focused company that continues to progress and outdo themselves. The software is intuitive and dynamic. This is not a database for storing important information, it's for using important information. Because of the representatives, working with School Admin has been a delight.

Pros

The automated communication plan: Beginning with Inquiry and through Enrollment, completed checklist items trigger emails that communicate specific details. The emails include important links to the website during the inquiry phase. During the application and enrollment phase, emails contain a dynamic checklist that is specific to the emailed family. No more shuffling of paperwork or handmade checklists. Plus, the admissions department is paperless and the central office all has access to students.

Cons

It has been a challenge to get our updated student data into our School Information System (SIS).

Overall SchoolAdmin is very good at what they do, my Director of Admissions loves it, it covers all she does very well. But for me in IT, dealing with all our information needs, it is a real drag having the system that is the entry point for student and parent data not have any integration with our other information systems downstream. Especially when it costs more than those downstream systems cost combined. With everything moving to integrated systems I don't see how SchoolAdmin can survive longterm with this sort of standalone model; their limited number of API partnerships may reflect that. A bigger SIS that has their own integrated Admissions module probably isn't all that incentivized to work with SchoolAdmin on an API. Ultimately they seem like a great candidate to either buy an SIS or get bought by one.

Pros

Well designed User Interface, don't mind working in it. Logical workflows, easy to learn, covers the Admissions/Enrollment process very well.

Cons

Admissions/Enrollment is but one piece of the independent school information landscape. Though it is the "cadillac" of admissions systems that I've seen, it doesn't have much in the way of integration downstream with your Student Information System etc. They have a very limited number of API partnerships, they don't have an API integration with my SIS, so I have to export to CSV from SchoolAdmin and import into my SIS. It's also very expensive, it costs more annually than our SIS and Donor Management systems combined.

I rely on School Admin for nearly every aspect of my job. When things have gone wrong, a member of the School Admin support team has responded quickly and stuck with me until the problem could be found and resolved. This has included evenings and weekends when bulk enrollment emails have gone out. They go above and beyond. When Julianna, our original (and much beloved!) representative changed positions, I was worried the level of support would change as well. Remarkably, it hasn't.

Pros

I appreciate the ease of use and the scope of what can be managed through the software. I am a team of one for a school of over 500 students. I can't imagine getting it all done without School Admin.

Cons

In the past, I would have said that I wanted to be able to add an attachment to emails. However, School Admin is responsive to the feedback of its users and added that feature along with others to make the software even more comprehensive.
