Be a Blake Ambassador
As the nation experiences a steady, albeit slow, economic correction, many prospective families remain concerned about the value and affordability of an independent school experience. This reality, coupled with the fact that the Twin Cities offers several great schools, including public school options, means that we must be even more focused on and vigilant about articulating the specific benefits (academic, social and life-path) that we believe accrue to each and every Blake student. This year Admissions, in tandem with the Communications Office and a Board of Trustees marketing task force, will work diligently to refine how we promote Blake to the masses. I’m more than confident that this generative and intentional work will only further our success in attracting the most talented array of students from across the metro area.
As the Admissions team continues with its fall recruitment planning, I encourage you to consider your role as a Blake parent ambassador. Some simple ways to actively serve as an ambassador might include: sharing your Blake experience with family members and friends; inviting colleagues and associates to Blake events; volunteering at admission open houses; and encouraging those who ask you about Blake to contact the Admissions Office at (952) 988-3420.
Thank you for all that you do to keep our learning community vibrant and thriving!
