We are seeking to appoint a college and career counselor for the current school year, to work with scholars in the middle and upper schools. While border restrictions are in place we can consider candidates outside of China who are able to work remotely initially.
Under the supervision of the director of counseling, the college counselor will coordinate all aspects of college placement and career guidance services. This includes:
Meeting with individual students and parents regarding post-high school placement.
Publicizing relevant information regarding post-high school placement (dates of college admissions tests, scholarships, etc.)
Conducting college and career guidance advisory groups. Informing students and parents of college options and providing resources so that families can make the best possible decision.
Facilitating student college application processes.
Helping students identify their strengths and the relevance of these attributes to their future.
Developing and updating college counseling publications distributed to students and families and dealing with all aspects of the college admissions process, financial aid, test-taking practices, and other topics.
Serving as the case manager for each student and monitor students' academic progress.
Maintaining detailed counseling records for designated students including college application information, scholarships applied, college acceptance and scholarships received.
Preparing reports and analyzing data on courses and credit eligibility, college acceptance statistics, and scholarships received by students.
Along with an American school-based curriculum, developed in collaboration with high-performing independent secondary boarding schools in the US, the school also draws on the high-quality competition training program of No. 2 High School of East China Normal University.
We have established a four-level curriculum that includes college preparatory (CP), enriched college preparatory (ECP), Advanced Placement (AP) and enriched AP (AP Plus) levels. Accordingly, the AP course objectives provide the basis of our academic standards and allow for a personalized learning pathway that extends beyond the AP curriculum, positioning scholars to excel among their international peers.
By incorporating the credit system of universities and including various life block programs, we offer a highly personalized program of study, resulting in a unique class schedule for each scholar, thus providing a competitive education for Chinese scholars to find their best fit for studying in the world's highly selective universities.
We expect our educational leaders to embody the very same high standards and dispositions we expect our graduates to model: to be a resilient scholar, adaptable ambassador, enlightened communicator and ethical visionary.
Therefore, every educator will be expected to contribute actively to the whole life of the school, working with scholars beyond the classroom in advisory, co-curricular and residential programs.
We are building a diverse, enthusiastic and highly supportive community of teachers who are committed to academic excellence and the creation of opportunities for scholars to take charge of their learning with daring optimism and drive.
We are seeking to appoint a highly talented faculty to cover all areas of the school and who can share in our ethos – enjoying collaboration and learning, embracing cross-cultural adaptability, and sharing a resilient and ethical passion for developing an outstanding college preparatory school.
