Private Schools

We are an established leader among private schools.

Serving more than 120 private schools, our partners and engagement teams have a wealth of real-life experiences to draw upon for business advisory and best practice recommendations. We don’t just deliver financial results in a typical "this is what happened" approach. Instead, we offer a custom set of financial solutions developed solely for our private school clients.

Armanino is different from other accounting firms. Not only do we provide the best service at competitive rates, but we also add value to your school by providing a snapshot benchmarking analysis versus a customized group of select private schools that allows you to see how your school stacks up against the best run private schools in the country. This analysis, coupled with our decades of private school experience, provides some very unique and helpful financial metric analytics that will enlighten your school in areas not otherwise considered or evaluated

Real-Time Performance Management (RPM): Through our RPM business intelligence tool, your board and key stakeholders will have 24/7 access to the transparent and accurate financial metrics and reports your school needs. Armanino’s RPM also enables your school to streamline finance meetings and accelerate reporting procedures, because it can automatically produce the majority of your financial and board reports in a concise, structured format—allowing you to focus on more pressing activities.

Custom Benchmarking: We created a snapshot benchmarking analysis, which compares a client school to a customized peer group and shows how it stacks up against other private schools. The benchmarking comparisons offer a unique view into the worlds of other schools and can be invaluable in helping your management and board make tough operational decisions and plan for the future.

Considering Hiring In-House or Outsourcing Key Roles?

It’s not an all or nothing endeavor. Outsourcing job functions in your business office doesn’t mean giving up your entire in-house team. Keep the strength of your staff but add in the specialization and expertise you desire.
