[LAFAYETTE, LA] – [JULY 12, 2023] – Today, SchoolMint, the leading provider of strategic enrollment management solutions in K-12, announced the launch of SchoolFinder 2.0, a fully redesigned and re-engineered school search and comparison tool that simplifies the selection process for districts and families alike.
As school and program choice options continue to expand, this new version of SchoolFinder makes it easy for families to easily find schools or programs that align with their needs, interests, and priorities.
Unlike traditional school or program directories providing basic information with no comparison tools, SchoolFinder offers parents and students meaningful comparisons on a variety of factors. By harnessing the intuitive search-and-learn interface, SchoolFinder enables families to make informed decisions based on accurate and up-to-date information.
“We are excited to launch SchoolFinder 2.0, a game-changing tool that revolutionizes the school search and selection process,” says Bryan MacDonald, SchoolMint’s Chief Executive Officer. “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 more effectively promote their options. This two-way discovery boosts enrollment and enables students to find their best choice.”
Simplified information management: Districts can easily manage their schools and programs with a new drag-and-drop interface that makes it easy to add, edit, and remove information.
Workflow notifications: Administrators can be notified when changes are made to school or program profiles, ensuring 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 caters to both districts and families with numerous benefits to each:
For districts, SchoolFinder serves as a powerful tool to showcase all campuses, understand parental search patterns, and improve strategic planning, resource allocation, customer experience, and brand building.
For families, SchoolFinder provides an intuitive search-and-learn interface, ensuring access to essential information regardless of socioeconomic background and aiding in the enrollment decision-making process.
With SchoolMint Enroll, families can seamlessly transition from finding schools on SchoolFinder 2.0 to initiating the application and enrollment process. Meanwhile, SchoolMint Insights, the category-leading enrollment analytics platform, provides administrators with best-in-class enrollment insights and powerful data needed to maximize their enrollments.
SchoolFinder is available now.
