SchoolMint, the leading provider of strategic enrollment management solutions in K-12, has launched SchoolFinder 2.0, a fully redesigned and re-engineered school search tool that simplifies and streamlines the selection process for districts and families. As school and program choice options continue to expand, this new version of SchoolFinder makes it easy for families to find the schools or programs that align with their needs, interests, and priorities.
Unlike traditional school or program directories providing basic information without comparison tools, SchoolFinder offers parents and students meaningful comparisons on various factors. By harnessing the intuitive search-and-learn interface, SchoolFinder enables families to make informed decisions based on accurate and up-to-date information.
Speaking about the initiative, Chief Executive Officer of SchoolMint, Bryan Macdonald, said:
We are excited to launch SchoolFinder 2.0, a game-changing tool that revolutionizes the school search and selection process. SchoolFinder 2.0 fits seamlessly into our Strategic Enrollment Platform suite, enabling families to find the right school for their child and for schools and districts to promote their options. This two-way discovery boosts enrollment and encourages students to find their best choice.
Key features of SchoolFinder 2.0 include:
- Simplified information management: Districts can easily manage their schools and programs with a new drag-and-drop interface that makes adding, editing, and removing information easily.
- Workflow notifications: Administrators can be notified when changes are made to school or program profiles, ensuring that all information is up-to-date.
- Live open-seat tracker: Families can see how many open seats are available at each school in the district, making it easier to choose the right school for their child.
- New search features: Families can search for schools by name, grade level, interests, programs, and services. They can also compare schools side-by-side and see current content (photos, videos, etc.), distinctive attributes, and (optionally) school performance, customer reviews, and more.
SchoolFinder 2.0 was designed with both districts and families in mind, with numerous benefits to each. The platform is a powerful tool for communities to showcase all campuses, understand parental search patterns, and improve strategic planning, resource allocation, customer experience, and brand building. SchoolFinder provides an intuitive search-and-learn interface for families, ensuring access to essential information and aiding in enrollment decision-making.
In addition, SchoolFinder 2.0 seamlessly integrates with SchoolMint Enroll and SchoolMint Insights, creating a trifecta of school discovery, easy enrollment, and data-driven continuous improvement. With SchoolMint Enroll, families can seamlessly transition from finding schools on SchoolFinder to initiating the application and enrollment process. Meanwhile, SchoolMint Insights, the category-leading enrollment analytics platform, provides administrators with powerful data and best-in-class insights to maximize enrollment.
With products that put the family experience first while generating powerful insights, SchoolMint is committed to helping schools attract and enrol more students, families, and teachers and retain them for years. The company is headquartered in Lafayette, LA, and is backed by BV Investment Partners. It has worked with thousands of schools to help them improve enrollment by getting their website higher in Google search results, advertising directly to interested families, and much more.
