Paskill Academy

Helping your team deliver on critical enrollment goals.

Admission and enrollment efforts require campus-wide support. But higher education admissions counselors, staff and faculty often don’t get the training they need to make an impact.

That’s where we come in.

We offer professional development workshops that support recruitment, yield and brand building. Our programs can help improve your team’s effectiveness, enrollment and staff retention.

Don’t just send a couple team members to a conference. We’ll come to you and the entire team will benefit — boosting enrollment, collaboration and communication skills.

“The workshop provided my team with some new perspective and techniques to improve engagement with prospective students and their families. Not only did Dana bring knowledge and concrete techniques to improve interactions, she was able to read the personalities of the staff very quickly. The day after the training, each of my staff selected three new techniques they were going to work on. They loved having solid ideas to implement.

The content, manner of presentation, and the real-world applications are excellent. We are ready for the enrollment challenges ahead!”
