Job Description

Woodberry Forest School is accepting applications for an Associate Director of College Counseling. Woodberry’s Associate Director of College Counseling will be a critical member of a four-person team including the Director of College Counseling, Associate Director of College Counseling, and College Counseling Assistant and Test Coordinator.


The Associate Director position is a full-time, twelve-month appointment. Woodberry college counselors work with students and families primarily in the sophomore, junior, and senior years. Counselor-student pairings are made in the junior year, and counselors work directly with around 35 students/families in each class. The Associate Director will help students identify colleges of interest, support students in completing their applications, write thoughtful letters of recommendation, advocate appropriately for students, serve as a resource for parents, and participate in professional organizations, conferences, and college visit programs, both on and off-campus.


The ideal candidate will be a team player with excellent communication skills and a sense of humor. The role requires a desire to work closely with a range of talented students and a willingness to engage fully in a residential school community. Candidates must be strong writers, good listeners, detail and deadline-oriented, and excited about working collaboratively with colleagues and students. A bachelor’s degree is required, as is significant professional experience in college admission and/or college counseling. As a member of our boarding school community, the Associate Director will live in campus housing and be involved in other aspects of school life.

Located on 1,200 beautiful acres in Madison County, Virginia, near Charlottesville and Washington, DC, Woodberry is an all-residential school.
