About the Entry



Saint Xavier High School perceived that many in its immediate constituent database of 30,000 students, alumni, parents of students, grandparents of students and parents of alumni would be iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone owners. Our goal was to create a unique and easy way to engage these individuals more fully in the life of our institution. Even though we had a successful mobile friendly website, we found that Apple users were more inclined to access mobile information through an app vs. a mobile friendly website. In just one month’s time, the App was downloaded over 1200 times, a substantial number given our school’s enrollment and alumni base. By successfully increasing participation in our charitable giving efforts and community events, we enhance the school's opportunity for continued success.

In particular, we distinguished the ease of accessing faculty contact information, event and athletic schedules, athletic results and school news would increase the exchange of pertinent information with our current parents and students and foster an increased dialog with our alumni. All while recognizing that a quick visit to our app had better provide up-to-date and continually changing content in addition to static information counted on being there by the user.

Examples include increased and almost immediate communication between parents and faculty regarding student performance, increased alumni involvement in association events and a greater knowledge of school accomplishments among constituents through quick access to news.
