Education Technology Leader, Finalsite, Acquires SchoolAdmin, An Innovative Digital Enrollment Solutions Company
Finalsite Amplifies Its End To End Digital Enrollment Capabilities, Expands Client List
Finalsite, a global leader in digital communications, website development, and online marketing for private and public schools, today announced that it has acquired SchoolAdmin, a leading K-12 Enrollment Management System and developer of proprietary tools designed to help schools seamlessly manage admissions, enrollment, and tuition billing processes.
With this acquisition, Finalsite will be uniquely positioned to offer schools a wide array of offerings from website and digital marketing to a user-friendly, strategic enrollment management platform comprising modules such as automated student/parent communications, appointment scheduling, contracts, and tuition billing — specifically designed for education. The combined entity will make it significantly easier for schools to manage communications and personalize the entire family journey — from attracting prospective students, to converting families to loyal community members, and retaining them as supportive alumni and lifetime donors.
“Education is about personal relationships and human interaction, and for more than 20 years Finalsite has helped schools around the world transform the way they connect and engage with their communities through innovative technology solutions. Today marks an exciting new chapter in Finalsite’s history. Combining the strengths of Finalsite and SchoolAdmin will accelerate our mission to help schools prepare students to be successful in a technology-enhanced, global marketplace,” said Jonathan Moser, Finalsite’s founder and CEO. “As we look to the future, we will be able to provide our school partners with new ways to innovate and impact the communities they serve.”
"For more than a decade, the SchoolAdmin team has been deeply committed to helping schools grow and thrive. We are thrilled to be joining forces with Finalsite, a company that shares our commitment to delivering exceptional experiences for customers and creating an engaging and rewarding place for our teams to work. We enjoy similar cultures centered on caring and innovation, with a shared dedication to the communities, families, and educators we serve," said Nate Little, CEO and co-founder of SchoolAdmin.
This acquisition is aligned with Finalsite’s vision to grow and change the way communities engage with their schools and comes as Finalsite, the education industry leader, has just completed a rebranding initiative.
