Independent schools offer students, families, and communities immense value, preparing leaders and providing an education experience that is second to none. This said, as organizations that rely on tuitions, fundraising, and activities, they face a multitude of challenges that can’t be answered by demanding higher property taxes. This is why we’ve spent years as a leader in the independent school community, designing products and recommending software that makes the lives of business managers easier.
We respect your work and want to help you continue improving your school, putting more money back into programs, and doing more work to prepare tomorrow’s leaders. We know that many of you will be heading to The National Business Officers Association (NBOA) Annual Meeting, and are proud to announce that we will be there to discuss our products and services for the independent school community.

NBOA Annual Meeting Headed to Nashville
The event is scheduled for Mach 4-7 in Nashville and is the perfect destination for NBOA’s biggest and most dynamic event ever. Independent schools have a lot in common with the music industry.
