Bard High School Early College (BHSEC) Manhattan is a screened New York City public high school located on the Lower East Side. A unique partnership between Bard College and the NYC Department of Education, BHSEC seeks to provide a rigorous course of study that emphasizes thinking through writing, discussion, and inquiry. This alternative to the traditional high school is founded on the belief that many young people are ready and eager to do serious college work at age sixteen. Based on the premise that these young adults' ambition to learn must be taken seriously, BHSEC's four-year program enables highly motivated students to earn a New York State high school Regents diploma and a tuition-free Bard College associate's degree in four years.
The Part-time Admissions Assistant will work with the Bard High School Early College admissions staff to facilitate the fall admissions process. The assistant will assist with the management of a busy admissions office, answering phones, assisting prospective families, filing, and entering data on prospective students into the admissions database. This is a fantastic opportunity for an outgoing, detail-oriented, and well-organized individual with an interest in education and school administration to learn about a unique, progressive high school and to gain valuable office experience. This position would be ideal for a college student (junior, senior, or graduate level) and/or someone with a flexible schedule and a strong interest in education.
We ask for a commitment of 15-18 hours a week from September 17, 2018 to late-December. Must be able to work Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018.
