Greater Engagement Leading to Higher Student Retention and Revenues

Forward thinking schools use Owlwise to provide them with a competitive advantage over schools that have not embraced the use of secure online technology to better communicate and engage with stakeholders.

The success of your Private School is ultimately driven by how well you attract and retain students.

The private school business is dynamic and can be extremely rewarding. Yet, it is a competitive business – regardless if you are a For-Profit or a Not-for-Profit organization. Your ability to keep enrollment strong and to minimize student attrition is what will allow your school to grow and thrive.

Critical to this is achieving deep and meaningful student and parent engagement with your school and with your teachers. Your stakeholders must feel involved with your school. Parents want to be able to communicate their thoughts and concerns and have visibility on their child’s progress, what teachers are teaching and how your school is providing a superior educational experience.

Owlwise provides schools with an easy to use, secure and affordable platform to engage with technology savvy students and busy parents.

Enhanced Parent Convenience and Satisfaction

Parents today are busy – the combination of hectic careers, kids, elder care, and the increasing demands of modern life make parenting extremely challenging. Yet, the parents of your school want to provide the best educational experience possible for their children.

Owlwise makes their lives easier and less stressful.

Our tools allow parents to conveniently register for your programs and approve and pay for events online. Our parent dashboard provides them with tools and calendars to stay on top of school events, notifications, key dates, grades and homework assignments.

Busy parents don’t like paper forms and preparing checks. Paper forms are not environmentally friendly, inefficient, time consuming to complete and get lost easily. Registrations each year with paper forms is a really pain point for parents and contributes to attrition.

The business world that your parents are accustomed to is already moving away from paper checks to electronic payments. Having children carry checks, or even worse, cash, is simply unsafe.

An Efficiently Run, More Profitable, School

Running a school efficiently and cost effectively is no different than it is for a profit oriented business. However, many schools tend to be behind the business world when it comes to using technology to efficiently manage their school. If your school still relies on paper registrations and manual processes to handle student records, events and communications, Owlwise can help you save time and money.

If you still collect payments for programs and events by check and cash, Owlwise will allow you to go completely electronic for billings and collections, leading to faster cash flows, reduced NSF’s, greater customer convenience and higher security for your students.

Studies have shown that school that set-up preauthorized debit and recurring credit card payments for their tuition and fees enjoy lower attrition rates. Furthermore, consumer studies also show that consumers tend to spend more money when they have the ability to pay by credit card.


When a parent or student is required to prepare a batch of checks or if they need to complete paper forms to reregister each session, it gives them the opportunity to quit. Conversely, a preauthorized and recurring payments require your customers to terminate the relationship and discourages attrition.
