The Challenge

The first call to SteerPoint was discussing that the Roncalli High School website was down and not functioning. After calling 3 other local marketing agencies who couldn’t solve the problem or knew how to get the website back up, we were able to solve their short-term problem.

Once the first issue was solved, they expressed a need to replace their current website with different technology that was more user-friendly.

They requested that we advise them on a long-term solution to the school’s website. After looking at the current options in the educational field that Roncalli was exploring, SteerPoint identified that with a custom website, they would have full control of all design, updates, and changes that a “premade” plug and play system would not have. With that, an additional challenge was that Roncalli also wanted an athletics website outside of the main website, that would enhance the athletics and fundraising at Roncalli and provide information that was more than what was currently being communicated to alums, students, and parents. And, they only had 90 days to the start of the new school year to design, create, code, and launch this new website.

The Solution

SteerPoint, in conjunction with the Roncalli Athletics, Communications and Advancement Departments, developed 2 new, custom UX and UI websites. With the athletics website, we focused on sports schedules and results for each individual boys and girls sport and a new enhanced menu which reduced clicks to get to the sports results by 3 clicks.

We developed an informational sidebar not only with areas for sponsors, but for social media, video, and marketing. We coded the entire backend of the athletics website so the team at Roncalli could update information with major ease after our individual training sessions.

With the main Roncalli website, it was one of their specific requests for it to be intuitive but for it to also be a marketing tool for prospective students as indicated by Roncalli’s President. Both websites were built on a custom WordPress theme, unique only to Roncalli.

What the Client Said:

Roncalli High School

Oh my gosh, We love our new sites! Working with SteerPoint was such a great experience from design to development, and the process was so much easier than I thought it would be. SteerPoint not only understood all our needs but brought years of experience to add to the conversation that resulted in two new school websites that we are all proud to show off to our students, parents, alumni and faculty.
