What Clients Are Saying

Connor Associates has worked with some of the finest academic and non-profit organizations across the nation as well as overseas.

You always do such a great job for our schools: glad to have you in the field!

Pat Bassett, Immediate Past President
National Association of Independent Schools
Washington, DC

“Mike and his research associates did a great job for us, not only by conducting confidential research, but extrapolating from it both strategic and tactical suggestions. While there is strong demand for our program, it is important for all schools to listen carefully to those we serve in order to stay ahead of the curve in a highly competitive educational marketplace.  Nearly all of Connor’s recommendations were adopted, from admission tips to curricular suggestions. His final presentation to the Board was highly actionable, pitch perfect, and helped get us all pulling in the same direction for the road ahead.”

Kimberly Zaidberg, Head of School
