Director of Student Engagement, Cristo Rey H.S.

Posted by Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School on May 10, 2022

Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School, a college preparatory, Catholic school for students of all faiths, nurtures and challenges young people to recognize and realize their full potential as they learn to love others, grow in their faiths, and serve the common good. Founded in 2012 and based in a beautiful campus in the Tioga neighborhood of Philadelphia, the school serves over 525 students in grades 9-12 from across the city of Philadelphia as well as Camden.

Each student participates in the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP), an integral part of the Cristo Rey model in which every student works one day a week throughout their four years at the school. While their students are at work, teachers use the time for lesson planning and preparation, student support meetings, and collaboration.

The Ideal Candidate:

Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School is seeking dedicated, intellectually curious and mission-driven educators who are open to growth, committed to equity and inclusion, and who reflect and/or celebrate our rich cultural diversity. As part of the team, they will have an opportunity to continue to develop one of Philadelphia’s most promising educational options for young people.

The ideal candidate will have a knowledge base of high school level extra-curricular and student development programming/production and experience delivering programs and services to support overall student growth. In this role, they will lead and manage community building and student development programs including the re-introduction of the Cristo Rey House Program, the second year of our social and emotional learning program called Grad @ Grad, and monitor and develop a full roster of after-school clubs. This role will work directly with students, along with faculty, staff, program partners and others invested in our mission.  They will have experience working with diverse students from lower socio-economic households, providing them with the ongoing mentorship and direction they require to successfully navigate their educational experience and reach their full potential.
