Allison Price Named Next Director of Enrollment Management

After a nationwide search, Allison Price has been named the next Director of Enrollment Management at The Agnes Irwin School. As Director, Allison will lead the strategic and operational components of enrollment management at Agnes Irwin, including student recruitment, tuition assistance, enrollment efforts, and outreach to prospective families.

Allison has a nearly 20-year career in independent schools and nonprofit leadership, having worked in enrollment management for the majority of her career, including as Director of Admission at The Derryfield School in New Hampshire, Assistant Head of School for Enrollment at Germantown Academy, and Director of Enrollment Management at Tatnall School in Delaware. In addition to her experience in all facets of enrollment management, in her previous roles in independent schools, Allison has also served as an advisor, coach, and family advocate.

 
She joins us from her current role at Operation Warm, a national non-profit serving children and families in need, where she has overseen development and strategy. At Operation Warm, Allison facilitated the national expansion of A Warm Welcome to the Library — a program connecting low-income children and families to public library resources — in addition to marketing, fundraising, and program evaluation responsibilities.

Allison earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Wellesley College before beginning her career in academic administration, subsequently earning a Masters of Education in School Leadership from Harvard Graduate School of Education. A longtime educational advocate, Allison's graduate school work centered around the importance of parent, school, and community relationships. A passionate voice for all children and families, Allison has worked with organizations such as Steppingstone, Breakthrough Collaborative, and Give Something Back to further educational opportunities for students all along the eastern seaboard.
 
Allison shared the following with the AIS community:
 
"I am thrilled to be returning to educational administration at AIS, a school I have long admired from afar. As someone who personally benefited from an all women's learning environment, I am passionately committed to the AIS mission of helping young women and girls develop into individual leaders and scholars."
 
"With her experience in both independent schools and nonprofits, Allison brings a unique set of skills and insights to the AIS community, and I look forward to her joining AIS this summer," Head of School Sally Keidel said. "An interviewer during Allison's finalist visit to campus noted that she displayed 'Optimism, enthusiasm, confidence, and warmth. She is a 'school person' in a way that is important in not only attracting families to Agnes Irwin, but [also] in contributing to our community.' Please join me in welcoming Allison to the Agnes Irwin community!"
