The School - Founded by Clara B. Spence in 1892, The Spence School is an independent, college preparatory day school serving 752 girls in Kindergarten through Grade 12. Ranking among the nation’s pre-eminent schools for girls, Spence is committed to high academic standards, integrity, a diverse student body, and a purpose larger than oneself.
Spence’s vibrant canvas of teaching and learning is inspired by the words of Clara Spence, who described learning as an “intellectual and moral adventure.” The talented faculty embraces the challenge of preparing Spence’s able students to thrive as engaged citizens with purpose, passion, and perspective.
The Position - Reporting to the Head of School, the Co-Director of College Counseling shares the responsibility of planning and delivering a comprehensive, individualized college counseling program for Spence’s 250?student Upper School (with approximately 65 students in each graduating class).
College counseling at Spence is a highly collaborative endeavor, with the Co?Directors working together seamlessly to meet the multifaceted needs of students and their families. The position is ideal for a seasoned counseling professional who enjoys bouncing ideas off of a colleague – an excellent communicator who is flexible, well organized, and confident. With high expectations the norm among all Spence constituencies – including students, families, faculty, and trustees – this is an exhilarating and demanding position that requires both diplomacy and the ability to set appropriate boundaries.
