The Noble Network of Charter Schools
Alumni Success Coach
Noble is Chicago’s highest-performing and largest network of public charter high schools. Noble opened in 1999 with the mission of preparing low income students with the scholarship, discipline, and honor necessary to succeed in college and lead exemplary lives, and to serve as a catalyst for education reform in Chicago. By making college a reality for our students, Noble is committed to changing the trajectory of the lives of our students and impacting their families for generations to come. Noble’s 18 campuses currently serve over 12,000 students, of whom 98% are minority, 87% are low-income, and 82% are first-generation college goers.
Across the Noble Network, over 20 staff are working to support 5,000+ graduates as they persist in college around the country. Our team will continue to grow as over 2,000 new graduates matriculate to college for the first time in the summer and fall. Starting this summer, some of these graduates will be supported by 2-3 new Alumni Success Coaches (ASCs) on the Noble Network Support Team, reporting to the new Manager of Alumni Supports.
ASCs will be responsible for providing personalized guidance and support to our graduates while they are in college, with the objective of improving persistence and college graduation. The ASC builds and maintains meaningful student relationships, develops a strong knowledge of on-campus student support services, and leverages quantitative and qualitative data from our alumni to help refine our campuses’ college readiness programs. ASCs need to have strong academic coaching experience and ability to equip and empower alumni with the skills and knowledge to overcome educational barriers, persist, and graduate from college.
