Secondary School and Higher Ed Enrollment Challenges

ATLANTA -- In some schools enrollment has dropped 25 percent as noted in recent articles in the Wall Street Journal and the Atlanta Journal Constitution. One article focuses on private schools and one on public institutions. No sector is immune. What causes one school to be vulnerable and experience this drastic decline while another school has increased enrollment and success? Enrollment is a complex subject, and depends upon the recruiting done by Admissions, the school's reputation, the all-in cost, financial aid, desirability of its programs to attract its potential students, and competitive position within its peer group. A drop in enrollment usually causes financial distress in balancing budgets, especially among those which are tuition dependent. There is no silver bullet to solving this situation, but administrators must be proactive and create game plans for dealing with empty seats and probable operating losses. If this continues for very long, the school will be in trouble with its accreditation agency as well as its lender.
