Tune in at 1 pm ET today to hear TABS Director of Member Relations Andy Hirt in a Higher Ed Live roundtable conversation about the current independent school marketplace. Andrew Milikin will host and also be accompanied by Brendan Schneider and Jay Goulart.
 
As educators we recognize the challenging market that we operate in. This week's show will tackle how to strategically approach the value of the education we provide in order to expand the market funnel in two directions, through enrollment and advancement.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Higher Ed Live. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Kids can learn conflict management, resilience, communication skills and more when playing sports (even in pick-up games) if adults would stay out of the way. Read what Michael Mulligan, head of school at Thacher School in Ojai, CA has to say about it. "What Our Kids Could Figure Out, If We Could Get Out of the Way." http://blog.boardingschools.com/?p=273

The Official Home of Boarding Schools
Introduction
The Association of Boarding Schools (TABS) is the official home of college-prep boarding schools and the definitive guide for students and families.

We serve roughly 300 boarding schools across the United States, Canada, and abroad. Serving as a bridge between schools and students, we actively support the needs of boarding schools themselves, and provide information and insight to families about the benefits of a boarding school environment.

To help families connect with schools, we publish an annual magazine/directory, and host www.boardingschools.com. Visit our website to browse school profiles, craft custom-guided online searches by criteria unique to you, request school catalogs and get a free magazine/directory each year.
