Website Xavier High School

The associate director of admissions serves as an initial point of contact for prospective families
and represents Xavier at student recruitment events throughout the metro NYC region. The
associate director of admissions facilitates the “Knight-for-a-Day” program for 8th graders and
collaborates with other admission team members to plan and execute an array of events including
Open House, accepted student events, individual tours, and question and answer workshops for
prospective students and parents. The position entails work hours outside of the traditional
workday, including evenings and weekends at recruitment events and admissions fairs. This is
particularly so in the fall and winter, when recruiting qualified applicants and assembling and
reviewing admission applications. In all functions, the associate director of admissions promotes
and supports Xavier High School’s mission as a Catholic, Jesuit, independent school for students
of diverse backgrounds and means. This is a non-tenure track, entry-level administrative
position.
