Tru is seeking an Admissions Director to support the growth of a dynamic community, grades K-5. Following progressive and constructivist principles of education, we provide many key characteristics of a research-based school:
Our unique program follows the philosophy of the founding teachers, who seek not merely to teach children but to awaken within them a sense of empathy and connection. Inspired by Parker Palmer, Nel Noddings, John Dewey, and many other voices in educational literature, the school believes that the inner experience of the child is crucial to meaningful growth.
As the Admission Director, you will work with the Head of School to develop a comprehensive strategy for outreach and family retention. You will oversee the entire process of attracting and enrolling new families: advertising budgets, social media presence, public relations opportunities, admission events, promotional materials, website development, application management, child visits and interviews, financial aid process, admission decisions, and welcoming new families. You will also work with other staff to facilitate parent engagement with the school and its mission.
Tru is an unaccredited member of the National Association of Independent Schools and a member of Bay Area Directors of Admission (BADA). We follow the BADA Principles of Good Practice, and as Admission Director, you will maintain our membership and relations with this association.
This position is not full time, but it may be combined with additional roles in office management, school communications, and student supervision. Your interests and strengths will help us determine the right arrangement. We are a founder-led school where everyone wears many hats!
