An Evolving Landscape
A platform that empowers admissions teams to see, connect with and 'nudge' the student forward on the path to college as if they are star athletes beginning in their 9th grade is incredibly important for everyone involved. Especially for parents who are concerned for their child's success. Now that the SAT has been eliminated in California, we are breaking down barriers to connecting and supporting students and parents on a level playing field."

Redefining the Way
Students are Recruited to College
Because Siembra Mobile provides ease of access to Schools, Parents or Students, we bring together all key stakeholders into the same “virtual gymnasium” for college admissions. There is transformative value achieving this important goal, breaking down institutional silos to building sustainable relationships to higher education. Our cost for continuous virtual enrollment is generally less than purchasing names. To the recruiter, this equates to about two high school road trips that does not guarantee any yield. We increase yield and conversions by building direct relationships in the new economy.
