Client Overview

Stratford Schools along the California coast put forth a unique STEM-based curriculum for students enrolled in Preschool through to Grade 8, with High School campus plans on the near horizon.

They define their purpose as, “connecting students to their unique futures.” Stratford’s faculty exercises a spirit of learning at all levels, aimed at encouraging student passion and curiosity.

The Challenge

When Stratford came to Kanopi Studios, they were seeking two things; end-of-life Drupal 7 support, and a partner that could work with them hand in hand. They were seeking a skilled team that could do design and UX consulting as well as development for ongoing projects.

The Solution

Stratford presented us with their marketing goals and allowed us to bring our expertise to the table with solutions tailored to their needs. Together, we were able to provide a refresh to key areas of their site, such as the homepage, their program pages and campus pages, as well as add new functionality to their site’s foundation.

One of the challenges we were able to help them overcome was connecting to APIs from third parties, such as ACTIVE, Jobvite, and Salesforce. Integrating these services has allowed their summer programs to blossom, boosted job applications, and has given them more accurate account management.

When I describe Kanopi to others, I talk about customer service, great services, a sustainable site, and a relationship that gets better over time. Every project we have done with Kanopi has improved our site and made it work harder and better for us.
