How do you tell your story?

You Know Education.
We Know Educational Marketing.

Your story, culture, challenges and priorities are unique. And we believe that our approach to telling your story should be, too. We partner with you to create and implement your marketing strategy, determining your goals and gathering an objective view of your positioning in the marketplace. With solid research at the heart and start of your project, we then create a strategic plan authentic to who you are and what you want to accomplish.

Our History

Many stories combine to tell the Kalix story.

Jonathan Oleisky, President, founded Kalix to provide, high-level, strategic, integrated marketing counsel to independent schools, colleges, universities and educational organizations throughout the United States. Our name says it all. Just like the 700-plus islands in the Kalix archipelago in Sweden, our tight-knit, collaborative team of senior-level marketing, research and design professionals creates a powerful collective force for our clients. We bring considerable experience and knowledge to each project and offer objective, research-driven third-party advice on how best to engage and market to prospective families and students.

Our entire staff are or were tuition-paying parents at independent schools, colleges and universities, and several team members honed their craft in these environments. We understand what it’s like to make tuition payments and that the value-add of an independent school education far outweighs the cost.

We can help you make history.

We give back.

We all have a responsibility to make the world a better place. As part of our commitment to our local community, Kalix donates one percent of our annual profit to B.E.S.T. (Baltimore Educational Scholarship Trust) to support academically ambitious African American children with financial need through the admissions process at local independent schools.

We love to share our success stories.
