Kelvyn Park’s GoCPS Applications over time

"What you're looking at is GoCPS application data for two rounds worth of data for the past 3 application cycles...Basically, after 1 round this year, I have more than triple the number of kids who applied to Kelvyn Park compared to the group of students who applied for SY20 (current sophomores)...Got to think our marketing work had a lot to do with this."

Not Just a higher Quantity...

But also a higher Quality

"When kids apply, they can rank schools 1-20. They can also leave their choices unranked or go in and cancel an application. I was wondering what our numbers looked like when we removed the unranked and canceled applications...

Check it out - we have over THIRTEEN TIMES the number of ranked applications compared to the 2018-19 school year. Inherently, because they're ranked to me means a higher interest level. I'd say we're not only getting a higher quantity but also a higher quality set of applications."

Does Your Visual Presence Matter?

Legendary football player Deion Sanders has been quoted saying,

“If you look good, you feel good.
If you feel good, you play good.
If you play good, they pay good.”

If looking good affects your bottomline, what can looking great do for you?

Can You See Your Future?

There's no question you were meant to be a principal. The real question is, what will your impact be?

Being a leader at a school is a long-term investment, and it takes a leader with foresight who truly believes in the organization and the outcomes it can produce to make things happen.

Knowing what's ahead, the attention to how your school is run and communicated now will establish the foundation of its growth and success. It shows you're invested, not just in the results, but with everyone involved and its sustainability. 

That's how leaders influence their people and build an organization that lasts. They're wise enough to know their reputation (their brand) lives in the mind of their people - a.k.a, your audience. In your case, it's your staff, students, families, strategic partners, key stakeholders, and your local community. That's quite a bit. The investment into your people and how you communicate with them matters now more than ever.

Great Leaders See The Future

Great leaders see the future, set a course, and pursue it relentlessly. They conquer the present despite criticism, ambiguity, adversity. They reflect on, learn from, and weave patterns from the past. Great leaders possess the humility, optimism, passion, and wisdom to inspire others and evoke their full commitment.

"In the Light Studios

(ILS) continues to impress me
with how they innovate

new ways to market Kelvyn Park. Most recently, it was the virtual tour which gives visitors a chance to take a virtual walk through the building to get unique insight into our academic, athletic, and community spaces. Not only was the ILS crew overwhelmingly professional and attentive to detail, they created a dynamic in-person experience for interested family members that is accessible from the comfort of their homes."

Your Visual Identity Embodies Your Look and Feel

Your voice (how you communicate with your audience) influences your brand

What Does Your Voice Look + Sound Like?

Whether you realize it or not, your school has a brand.

It's being reinforced every day through how you operate and communicate with your audience - both internally and externally.

Experiences are what mold your audience's perception of your school. How they felt in those experiences is what will influence your school's growth. It'll be what they communicate to others - the good, the bad, and the ugly. 

So. What is your school's brand saying, and how are you owning it?

Your Voice Needs to be
Seen and Heard

You should be able to cover up the the logo and still identify the company because the look and feel is so distinctive.
