The SSAT Board of Directors founded the Admission Leadership Council (ALC) in 2009 to reestablish a more consistent organizational and professional voice for members.


The role of the Admission Leadership Council is to: 

  • Be a sounding board for SSATB for the development of admission services
  • Serve as conveners and facilitators of annual, regional meetings of members
  • Provide leadership in the area of professional development for admission professionals
  • Act as advocates for the critical role of admission in schools


The Admission Leadership Council (ALC) facilitated a series of roundtable discussions at the 2010 SSATB Annual Meeting focused on persistent independent school admission challenges. Participants were encouraged to share those practices that have yielded positive results at their schools in addressing each issue. The results are found in the ALC Power Practices Compilation.
