Position: College Track Student Academic Coach
The team of College Track Student Success Coaches is responsible for ensuring that all College Track students maximize their potential. To do this, students must receive support aligned to their individual needs, and Coaches will be the primary direct service providers of these needs in one of three departments: Academic Affairs, College Completion, and Student Life. Coaches will collaborate with Program Directors to implement programs that meet the needs of each student. Coaches will also gain administrative experience by fulfilling day-to-day administrative tasks and running at least one administrative project throughout the school year.
● The goal of the Academic Affairs program is to give students the academic support necessary to graduate from high school college-ready and college-eligible. For most students, this means a GPA of 3.0 or higher and an ACT math score of 22 or higher. Academic Affairs Coaches will manage a caseload of students to academic outcomes; tutor students in 9th-12th grade subjects; assist students with online credit recovery; teach ACT workshops; lead academic workshops; provide academic advising; connect with teachers, counselors, and families; input and monitor student data; administer practice tests; and complete other duties as assigned.
