Company Description

We are on a mission to improve the whole student journey and better connect schools with families.

The days of students defaulting to assigned neighborhood schools are a thing of the past. Families should be able to choose the school that is right for their children. Often times there are multiple options. Those options are not always known, much less understood.

Founded in 2013 and backed by BV Investment Partners, SchoolMint is the leader in strategic enrollment management software for Pre-K-12 schools nationwide. Over 7,500 schools use our products to improve student enrollment, registration, application, lottery, and school choice for families.

At SchoolMint, we have a diverse, inclusive culture and work environment. SchoolMint is committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, ethnicity, color, ancestry, religion, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, or Veteran status. If you have a disability or special need that requires accommodation, please let us know.
