Admissions professionals are at the forefront of enrollment acceleration in our day schools. In the 2022-2023 school year CJP, in partnership with Prizmah, PJ Library, and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, offered a seminar to provide professional development for admissions staff as part of Prizmah’s Engage program. Since this program was focused on Grades K–8 in non-Orthodox schools, CJP offered a parallel Admissions Excellence Grant to Grades 9–12 in day schools, Grades K–8 in Orthodox schools, and any school that had previously participated in Prizmah’s Engage program.
This follow-on grant is targeted at schools who took advantage of the 2022-2023 admission excellence grant. This grant can only be used to build on the success of funds used for the purposes of the 2022-2023 admission excellence grant. For example, it can be used to rehire an admissions consultant previously hired as part of the original grant.
Day school admission staff must develop a plan to leverage capacity-building services that explicitly build on last year’s grant and submit a grant application to fund these professional development opportunities.
