Wow! Where did the summer go? While you were busy with your children at home and/or camp, the Hebrew Academy Admission Office was super busy interviewing, testing, and admitting new students. We have admitted over 100 new students so far, and more are still applying to begin school this year, which is fantastic. Equally exciting is that our enrollment has increased since last year which is a great feeling for the Admission Office and the entire school community. It is wonderful to experience school growth. Such growth means word is out about the great things happening every day at Hebrew Academy. Now we need to ride this wave of momentum toward the 2018-2019 school year. This is where you come in.
You may have noticed our increased presence on Social Media: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and so on, are a great way for us to share information about our school to our parent body and the community at large. If you have not found us on social media, now is the time to find us and follow us. We love it when you "Like" us online, but more important is for you to "Share" our posts as well. This is where social media truly becomes social and takes off. Parent word of mouth, either face to face or online, is our strongest form of marketing. Believe it or not, we are already recruiting students for next year. Having already received ten applications for admission for the 2018-2019 year, we are off to a great start for this year's recruitment season. Soon you will see us advertising invitations for new student recruitment Open Houses and other informational events for 2018-2019 enrollment. Please take the time to share these invitations with your friends and family members whose children attend other schools. Your personal invitation will only help get the word out about these opportunities and may even encourage a family who is unsure, to apply. We truly appreciate your help!
In the meantime, enjoy these first days of school and the return to school routines. We are so happy to have you at Hebrew Academy!
