Upper School College Counselor

Glenelg Country School in Ellicott City, MD seeks a full-time college counselor beginning July 1 for the 2022-2023 academic year. The College Counseling Office is a two-person office that serves an Upper School of 280 students who apply to a wide range of four-year institutions, including many of the most selective colleges in the country. GCS College Counselors work closely with Upper School families beginning in their junior year to determine interests, explore options and find the best fit for each student. In the years ahead, the College Counseling Office will work more directly with the Admissions Office, participate in more focused discussions about curriculum and strategic planning and play a greater role in school marketing and events. Candidates for this 12-month position will possess a bachelor’s degree (master’s degree preferred), excellent writing and communication skills, the ability to coordinate tasks in a deadline-driven environment, proficiency in Microsoft Office, knowledge and experience with admissions testing programs, and a strong sense of professional ethics. A love of teenagers and a commitment to holistic education are essential. Experience in selective college admissions or college counseling, the SCOIR data management system and independent schools will be important advantages. The position requires some evening and weekend hours in job-related duties, as well as participation in school events and activities. Occasional travel to colleges, universities, and professional conferences is necessary. Glenelg Country School offers competitive salary and benefits.
