A study conducted from 2018 to 2023 shows that schools can reach full enrollment months before with higher parent retention when they have excellent parent communications and speed. Here are the reasons why:


1.    Accessibility: The cornerstone of effective communication lies in its clarity. When potential Parents apply to your school, having accessible communication channels plays a crucial role in promptly addressing queries and ensuring a positive first impression.


2.    Engagement: Effective communication is a catalyst for fostering engagement with prospective students. When communication is transparent, personalized, and timely, it builds a foundation of trust and rapport. This trust encourages prospective students to follow through with the enrollment process and commit to the institution, thereby increasing enrollment rates.


3.    Efficiency: Speed in communication streamlines the enrollment process. Delays or gaps in communication can lead to frustration and disinterest among prospective students. Educare Enroll shows parents as the application and its documents flow through the enrollment process. By promptly addressing inquiries, processing applications, and providing necessary information, institutions can expedite the enrollment journey, making it more efficient for both parties involved.


4.    Competitive Advantage: In a competitive educational landscape, institutions prioritizing effective communication and swift responses gain a competitive edge. Potential students have various options, and those institutions that demonstrate attentiveness and responsiveness are more likely to attract and retain enrollees.


5.    Building Relationships: Communication is not just about disseminating information; it’s also about building relationships. Establishing a positive and supportive communication environment sets the tone for the student’s entire educational journey. This fosters loyalty and encourages word-of-mouth recommendations, which can further enhance enrollment numbers.


6.    Adaptability: Rapid communication allows institutions to adapt to changing circumstances and address evolving needs. For example, during enrollment periods, there might be gaps, misunderstandings, and confusion about admission criteria needs. Institutions that can quickly communicate are better positioned to attract prospective students, parents and families who would otherwise apply at a different school offering this support.


In essence, good communication and speed are not just about disseminating information quickly; they’re about creating an environment conducive to engagement, trust, efficiency, and adaptability—all essential for higher enrollment rates.
