Century Montessori Private School ( — www.CenturyMontessori.com), an elite private school that uses the Montessori method to give children optimal education and personal development, is announcing a new education director and principal for their Century College Collegiate, which is opening in September. Ivana Djuric, who had previously founded the Toronto-area Master Academy in 2010, will be starting in July.
“Of all the candidates, Ivana’s educational vision and dedication was unmatched,” says Mark Pereira, Director of Century Montessori Private School. “Her holistic approach to education not only proved wonderfully effective at Master Academy, but it is perfectly in tune with Century’s own practices.”
It was Djuric’s drive and commitment that saw Master Academy grow from its initial five students in 2010 to the over 100 it currently teaches. Among the academy’s many post-secondary successes is an 11th grade student who has already earned a scholarship to the University of Waterloo’s computer sciences program.
In addition to serving as the Century Montessori Private School high school’s principal, Ivana will also be taking on duties as the education director. “It means she will be taking on the program creation and implementation duties, like the Reach Ahead program for grades 7 and 8, or the Reach Out program that has students volunteering in the Richmond Hill community,” Pereira elaborates. “She will also be in charge of researching and designing further education methods for future growth.”
For her part, Djuric is taking to the new role with gusto and enthusiasm. “I've always been interested and passionate about education, opportunities, and personal growth,” she says. “If I can begin educating students from their roots, I can help them to become the best versions of themselves and help them create positive change in the world.”
Century Montessori Private School is a Montessori school located in the GTA. The private institution uses the Montessori method to provide holistic learning experiences for children of all age groups.
