“Poly’s mission is to prepare and inspire the next diverse generation of leaders and global citizens to act with intelligence, imagination and—above all—character.”
Poly Prep Country Day School seeks a dynamic educator to join the Upper School Deans’ Office as Upper School Dean. The team includes five Upper School Deans and an office coordinator; each Dean is responsible for the academic, personal, and college counseling needs of approximately 25 freshmen, 25 sophomores, 25 juniors, and 25 seniors. Upper School Deans serve as the primary contact for students and parents, helping advise them on course selection, co-curricular involvement, and all aspects of the college search and selection process. Building authentic relationships is at the core of a Dean’s work at Poly––with students and their families, faculty and staff, and college admissions professionals. Deans speak publicly in venues both small and large, write letters of recommendation, and are expected to engage fully in the life of the school.
Poly Prep strives to be an equitable, just, and diverse community, one proud of and deeply committed to empowering students to discover who they are and what they want to be. In keeping with the country day school philosophy, we seek community members who will share a passion for learning in and out of the classroom. Every educator at Poly Prep aspires to uphold our mission “to support and inspire the next diverse generation of leaders and global citizens to act with intelligence, imagination and––above all––character.”
With a 25-acre park-like setting in Brooklyn, we offer a great environment, with a full benefits package (medical, dental, vision, life insurance, a generous match on our 403(b) retirement plan, long-term disability, flexible spending account, pre-tax commute benefit, free parking, and free lunch).
How to Apply: Interested candidates should send a cover letter and current résumé detailing their interest in the position and specific evidence of their qualifications to Kyle Graham, Assistant Head of School, Enrollment Management and Student Outcomes at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The successful candidate is likely to be experienced in building strong relationships with students and has the best interest of our students at heart in all that they do. Clear and effective communication skills and a commitment to ongoing professional development are especially valued. Experience with highly selective college admissions either as a college counselor or admissions professional is valued, but not required.
