Stacy Jagodowski

A product of independent schools myself, I have enjoyed giving back to the independent school world as a faculty member and administrator. My career has focused on institutional advancement, with five years of admission experience and over a decade in marketing and communications. Over the years, I have led a number of successful marketing initiatives, including developing marketing plans for schools, leading and building award-winning marketing and communications teams, and implementing award-winning marketing programs for fundraising and relationship-development.  

In addition to serving in administrative roles in both admission and communications, I have held positions ranging from high school student newspaper advisor and middle school yearbook advisor, to teaching middle school public speaking and digital photography, and being a high school student advisor. Having worked in both day and boarding schools with grades ranging from PK-12/PG, I have had the opportunity to serve as an advisor to both high school and middle school students, as well as student clubs.
