Age and Stage®
Messaging Solutions

The best school doesn’t always get the tuition dollars. The one that tells the best story often wins. As painful as the reality may be, most schools have not taken the time to clearly define their messaging. They are not on the same page internally, which means it is a tall order for prospective families to discern the key themes that define a particular school’s unique approach to education.

Let’s fix that for your school. North Star Marketing’s messaging solutions can help your school define your key audiences, articulate your distinctives, and tell a compelling story to right-fit families. It’s not about talking points, clever one-liners, or even brand scripts. Rather, our focus is on developing a documented overarching narrative that unpacks your school’s value proposition by Age and Stage®.

At North Star Marketing, we help independent schools effectively connect with prospective and current families so you have more opportunities to share your story with clarity. Our message workshops, developed and led by Andy Lynch, CEO and founder of North Star, are designed to:

  • Align messaging across school teams 
  • Increase organic visits to your school’s website
  • Increase the average duration spent on your website 
  • Increase engagement with your brand
