Ravenna Solutions, a leading provider of enrollment management software to K-12 private schools, is excited to announce we are formally joining forces with Education Brands, a division of MB Parent Holdings, LLC based in Knoxville, TN. Ravenna Solutions provides private schools with a best-of-breed cloud-based admission system that provides a highly customized process and unprecedented efficiency improvements. The Education Brands companies, including Diamond Mind, Senior Systems and TADS delight 4,000+ schools and 650,000+ families today. Combined, the businesses have exclusively served K-12 private schools for over 100 years, consistently earning client satisfaction survey ratings over 96% year after year. Mike Barros, former CEO of Diamond Mind, leads Education Brands and Linda Haitani, co-founder of Ravenna Solutions, will be the new General Manager of Ravenna Solutions.
This suite of established companies will power K-12 private schools with solutions for admissions and enrollment, financial aid, tuition management, school and student/constituent management, and campus-wide digital payment options – all working in concert to empower schools to achieve educational, operational, and financial success.
“Education Brands is the perfect partner for Ravenna Solutions. We’re laser focused on supporting the admission and enrollment community. Education Brands allows us to pursue our mission while also providing opportunities to build integrations with other best-of-breed technology solutions. An open ecosystem is a win-win for all constituents,” adds Linda Haitani, General Manager, Ravenna Solutions.
“As a combined force, the complementary strengths, including an extensive, vibrant partner ecosystem, make us the premier provider of cloud-based software and payment solutions to K-12 private schools – from admissions, enrollment, school and student management software to solutions for online giving, tuition management, summer programs, alumni management, purchase cards, and more,” said Mike Barros, CEO, Education Brands. “In contrast to other platforms, we offer schools choice, flexibility, control and customer service excellence as we continue to look for ways to augment our proven, integrated suite of best-of-breed solutions.”
