NAIS Member Schools Facing Enrollment Crisis


NAIS reports in its most recent Summer 2020 Independent School Magazine that almost half of its 1600 member schools are facing a declining enrollment.

" More than a fourth of the affected schools are in a state of critical decline, having endured attrition greater than 10% since 2013. Each year, the percentage of under-enrolled NAIS schools steadily creeps higher, and there is no sign of this trend slowing. To the extent that independent schooling is an industry, ours is an industry in crisis. "

The article discusses how to adopt an 'enrollment growth mindset' to combat the risks many schools are facing and identifies 12 key strategies to focus on.

The relevance of this new data and the responsibility of boards to address these trends dovetails perfectly with our ISCA webinar next week that focuses on how to successfully conduct critical conversations with your board. See below to join us for this important webinar.
