Posted by Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School on February 14, 2023

Organization Summary:

Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School (CRPHS), 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 540 students in grades 9-12 from across Philadelphia and Camden.

Each student participates in the Work Study Program (WSP), an integral part of the Cristo Rey model in which every student works one day a week throughout their four years at the school. WSP is a subsidiary employment agency operated within CRPHS that trains students for entry-level employment and markets their services to local clients, enabling all students to earn approximately half the cost of their education through a job-sharing partnership. WSP participation is a critical component of every CRPHS student’s education. Through this program, CRPHS students provide valued service to Philadelphia area companies and organizations where they also find mentors and forge fundamental networks for their future success.

The Ideal Candidate:

Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School is seeking dedicated, intellectually curious and mission-driven individuals 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.

Job Summary: The Director of Operations leads the daily operations of the Work Study Program and serves as the bridge between the Work Study Department and Academics, Student Life, Transportation, the Deans, Facilities and Counseling. The Work Study Program and academic program are interdependent and interconnected at a Cristo Rey school. At the school’s very foundation is the conviction that work and academics enhance one another for the benefit of the students, the sponsors, the teachers and the community. Through intentional collaboration with other school leaders and by developing and executing deliberate processes and venues for communication and engagement between departments, this role leads the effort to ensure that all of the pieces that support Cristo Rey Philadelphia’s unique operating model are moving efficiently and in tandem so that CRPHS delivers a reliable and quality work study experience to students and job partners.
