Richmond, VA United States
With the retirement of Jim Jump, who has led the School’s college counseling program for three decades, St. Christopher’s seeks candidates with deep knowledge of the college process and familiarity with all aspects of college admission, ideally with some experience on “both sides of the desk.” The size of the senior class averages 90-95, and traditionally the college counseling process has formally begun in the spring of the junior year. In addition to the Director, the office includes an experienced associate director, a part-time college counselor, and an administrative assistant/office manager. St. Christopher’s seeks applicants who connect with students easily and will involve themselves in the life of the School. Strong candidates will be those in whom colleagues and parents find confidence, charisma, and authenticity. While assuming oversight of a well-run and respected program, the new Director will continue to evolve the structure of the program and the approach to best meet the needs of the boys and their parents while working closely with Upper School colleagues and the college counseling team at St. Catherine’s. The Director is an integral part of the School’s senior administrative team and serves as a key voice in the Upper School for curriculum, program, and the student experience.
