Back-to-School Begins in July

Gone are the days when Labor Day signaled the start of a new school year. In states like Arizona, Georgia, and Mississippi, most students will be heading back to school before August even begins. This shift highlights the need for marketers to adjust their back-to-school campaigns to align with these earlier start dates.


Spring Break: A March Madness

If you’re planning a spring getaway, be aware that the week of March 24th, 2025, will see a significant number of schools across the country on Spring Break. While states like Florida and Texas will start their breaks earlier in the month, the concentration of schools on break during this particular week will likely lead to crowded travel destinations.


End-of-Year Budget Bonanza

The last day of school varies widely, ranging from mid-May to late June. This variation offers a prime opportunity for businesses to target end-of-year spending as schools rush to utilize their remaining budgets. Extending promotions into the summer can help capture this critical spending period.


Adapting to a Year-Round Marketing Strategy

For nearly 100 years, MCH Strategic Data has been a leader in the education marketing industry. The school marketing landscape has evolved significantly, necessitating a year-round marketing approach. The days of a quiet summer break are over; today’s educational marketing requires constant engagement.


The 2024-2025 school calendars show that the marketing cycle in education is virtually continuous. Businesses need to adopt a data-driven strategy that accounts for the entire school year, maximizing the impact of their campaigns by timing them with key budget and funding cycles.
