School Strategies and Solutions advises, leads and provides value-adding resources and insights for independent school leaders. We offer a talented, engaged and experienced team that offers energetic, and customized management and governance consulting services. We deliver client-focused strategy recommendations; objective analyses; self-reflective data; and customized solutions in helping schools achieve their strategic goals.
Independent schools build and sustain momentum with effective consulting support that assists trustees and leadership in:
Increasing the effectiveness of the board of trustees
Placing administrative leaders who align with the school’s mission, objectives, and challenges, both current and projected
Facilitating and stimulating strategic thinking and planning, especially in developing a sustainable financial model
Clarifying the school’s future vision and securing critical funding resources
Analyzing and managing key indicators in school operations
Challenges remain for many independent school leaders even as the economy has recovered substantially from the downturn in 2008-09. Recent enrollment gains have ironically yielded decreased net tuition revenues when a legacy of over-committed financial aid obstructs the attainment of a sustainable financial model. Achieving proper balance in key indicators requires, above all, a highly focused and effective board of trustees, and administrative leadership with vision, on-target insights, realistic strategies and staff accountability.
That is where we come in! From our highly-rated trustee seminars to the many complimentary comments about our deeply personalized and successful leadership placement results, to our spot-on analyses of inefficient operational practices, our client references consistently report their satisfaction with the value added insights we deliver to their schools.
