University Counsellor 2023 – 2024 Academic Year
Located in the beautiful Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, Brentwood College School is committed to making our school the best place to learn and work. As one of the top boarding high schools in North America, we offer a vibrant culture, competitive compensation, a diverse student body, and an absolutely stunning oceanfront campus. Our Admissions motto is #choosetobe and this applies to our faculty as well.
Do you love being part of a dynamic learning environment? Are you accredited or able to become accredited to teach in the Province of British Columbia?
This is a full time position in the University Counselling Department, a component of classroom instruction, and affiliation with a boarding house at a competitive salary, based on years of experience. You will counsel students to plan, structure and program Brentwood courses with university studies plans in mind. Preference will be given to applicants with significant experience and expertise counselling students in making applications for acceptance to post-secondary institutions.
You will be working alongside colleagues who are dedicated to supporting a positive student learning experience, from classroom to studio to athletic venue to boarding house. The faculty at Brentwood do not work for the holidays. They want to work with students who are interested in learning and see a future that includes their skills and ideas. If you can see yourself working at a school where each student is contributing in academics, making a name for themself in the arts and competing athletically wearing the school insignia, all while living away from home, Brentwood could be the community you’ve been looking for.
Working at Brentwood is not like working at a typical school. Because we have more than 80% of our students as boarders, we take on the duty and privilege of creating a home away from home. We have a tripartite system, where academics, arts, and athletics are all valued and an expectation for all students. Our unique schedule allows for more options for our students, meaning more options for our faculty. And can we talk about the food? Our Food Services Team is famous for creating delicious and diverse meals, all enjoyed while looking out over the ocean towards Mt. Baker.
